The word Hare has come from 'Haran' which means to take way or to end. So when one says Hare Rama Hare Krishna, he requests the God to take away his sorrows , his shortcomings, his failures and pains.

"Hare" can be interpreted as either the vocative of Hari, another name of Vishnu meaning "he who removes illusion", or as the vocative of Hara, a name of Radha, Krishna's eternal consort or Shakti.

I agree with Stone Heart
"Hare" can be interpreted as either the vocative of Hari, another name of Vishnu meaning "he who removes illusion"
& sins...
here Vishnu means MahaVIshnu or Omkar/Onkar.
