Comments for TALON:

Good name for a sexy female mercenary or some kind of superhero with cat powers, but I would hesitate naming a human child this.

I could never name a child this; I would only be able to think of an owl's foot.

Sounds cool, but then again it's a bird's toenail.

Talon sounds incredibly stupid as a given name. Why would you name your kid after a bird's claw? And of course it's part of the trend of giving boys violent names. I'll pass.

This is the name of Malon's father in the Legend of Zelda series.

For a character or a police dog, sure it sounds like a tough and kick-butt name, but as for naming a human this, no thanks I'll pass.

This is what I named my son although I spell it Tallon. I think it is a strong unique name and do not think of it simply as a birds toenail but as its predatory claw it uses on prey (but not not in a morbid way). It's unique.

I don't understand why Talon's listing on here is strictly male, and not unisex. Honestly, when I think of a Talon, or someone's nail, a feminine image pops into my head. I still don't think I'd use the name in real life, though, because I'd basically be naming my kid "claw"--although I do think it's more feminine than masculine. Maybe for a character...?

I think this name is AWESOME! Are you people crazy? Lol. Well everyone is entitled to their opinion. Nothing feminine about this name at all. It's a predatory type name. Makes me think of a very manly man who would enjoy the outdoors. AWESOME name!

Love this name but noticed its popular so I cannot use it anymore.

There's a variant, Talyn, used in the Australian sci fi show, Farscape.

Think twice before naming your son a body part of a bird. Not at all appealing. It's like naming you child Dishwasher or Canvas. Just a word... not a name.
