Having the name Fallon is really awesome when you're in a large crowd who have similar names and I have always gotten compliments on how "original" it is. But one thing that happens quite often is that people like to pronounce it as Fall-on. It really doesn't bother me too much, having dealt with it all my life. But if you're one of those parents who doesn't like to correct the pronunciation, you may want to spell it as "Fallyn."
Being named Fallon is quite fun. It is fun because not many people have this name and when you met another, it is a surprise for both of you. One trouble I have ran into is nothing has your name on it. You know those key chains with names on them? I have never found one with my name on it. I guess that it is that way for a lot of names but with my parents having semi common names it can be kid of frustrating. If you are clumsy, people may call you Fall-on face. Even though that is not how you pronounce it. Fallon also sounds like a number of other names so sometimes I get confused if someone is calling for me or someone named Alen. However it is not as confusing as being in a class with 4 Sophias. I always have people telling me how cool my name is and I am definitely lucky to have it. The name leaves a lasting impact and people have a hard time forgetting me.
I named my daughter Fallon. It's not hard..I say it's like Jimmy Fallon. It's an Irish name and my husband and I both think it is a beautiful name. She also has many cute nicknames.
I also named my daughter Fallon. Everyone who hears is says "what a beautiful name!" With Jimmy Fallon hosting the tonight show there is no mistaking the pronunciation. This Irish name is a keeper!
