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.

A main character in the Raymond E. Feist series "Conclave of Shadows" is named Talon of the Siver Hawk.

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...?

Talan Torriero was a "character" on the 2004 MTV series "Laguna Beach".

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!

In the localized English version of Sengoku Basara (Devil Kings), ninja Sasuke Sarutobi is named "Talon."

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.

You guys are being silly! And forgetting the numerous names that mean other arbitrary nouns..

Lily, Leo, Hope, Forrest, Clementine, Jasper, Jade, Olive, Heath, April, May, June, Violet.


Anyone who is saying this is "just a birds toenail" honestly hasn't given baby names a lot of thought.
Talon, just like Jasmine which used to only be a type of tea until the last 50 years, could be the next awesome name.

Don't listen to the nay-sayers.

The smuggler chief Talon Karrde is probably the most famous bearer of this name.
-- Caedus  4/7/2015
Personally I think this name is awesome, no one at my school has a name even close to mine. But apparently most of you don't like my name. Opinion is Opinion.

Talon seemed strange to me at first, but now it has grown on me, and I love it.

As Law said, there's nothing wrong with it being the name of an object or animal part.

Talon is masculine, strong, skilled, sharp, swoon-worthy, and sounds more stealthy than violent to me.

Obviously, this name's not for everyone. But to those bold enough, I say go for it. :)
