- Comments and insights on the name Faulkner
Faulk is my maiden name. I've considered naming my son Faulkner in honor of my side of the family. Only thing is, I'm not sure what I would use for a middle name. Also, I'm the only one who seems to be crazy about it, even my mother says it sounds a little odd. DH says its a little too literary for him. Especially when I joked his name could be Faulkner Scott Lastname or Faulkner Fitzgerald Lastname or Faulkner Hawthorne Lastname, haha. Even so, I still love the idea of it as a first name.
