How to pronounce Fallon?

Is it like gallon/Jimmy Fallon? Or is it Fallen - like Falling down?

Or something else?

I have seen it listed multiple ways. What is the correct or traditional Irish way to pronounce this name?

Thanks!

    Agreed, I have several cousins with the last name Fallon, I've never heard it pronounced any other way

    Wrong. It's like Jimmy FALLON, the late night guy. It's actually from an 80's show called Dynasty (you could probably youtube clips of it). There is a girl on there named Fallon Carrington.

    Trust me, my name is Falyn and people always call me FAY-LYN and it drives me crazy..I'm like HELLO! THERE IS NO 'Y' BEFORE THE 'L'! Haha :)

  • As a first name, I would assume fallon rhymes with gallon.

    However, I know people who have Fallon as their last name and pronounce it "fallen" as in rhymes with Stalin.

    ??? Who are you even talking to? And Falyn is different than Fallon...they could be pronounced differently by different people.

    No, it's not different. My mom just chose to spell it different, but it's pronounced the same. I've never heard of anyone named "Fallen" or "Fail-in" spelled Fallon. It's originally an Irish surname (O'Fallon) and it's pronounced just like Jimmy Fallon, the late night/SNL guy. Again, look up clips of the show Dynasty..that's where the first name came from, the character Fallon Carrington. Most anyone you meet with that name will have been born in the 80's or later because that show popularized it as a first name.

    This. I don't get why the pronunciation is even a question with this name.  It is pronounced the way it is spelled. 

    Amen. lol.

  • It's definitely like Jimmy Fallon.

    Fal-in

    I know three people with that name and it's how they all pronounce it.

    Ha!  I actually know someone whose name is Fallon Carrington.  It's actually her middle name though.  Maybe her parents liked the show.
