Aucun/e and personne

Can you help understand better when either is used? With examples perhaps?

Bonjour Meghna ! "Personne" means "no one / nobody": "Je n'ai entendu personne." (I heard no one. / I haven't heard anyone.) "Aucun/e" means "none": "Je n'ai entendu aucune des filles." (I heard none of the girls. / I haven't heard any of the girls.) "Aucun" always needs a referent noun (none [of something]): "Je n'*en* ai aucun." (I have none *of them*.) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
