The 2nd most boring name (in my opinion) after Ron (which also rhymes). Don, though, is a great nickname for Donald.
Don is an incredibly powerful name that only the most regal of people deserve to be called. It has a majestic aura that is unmatched by any other first name. It also is very reminiscent of the name Chris. Don is a bold name that comes with both great power and great responsibility. With the name Don, your child will be born as an adventurous adventurer with an insatiable desire for adventure. Overall, Don is the perfect name for any stoic person with a strong need for enriching experiences and lifelong fulfillment.

Quickly fading from view, which can't come soon enough. Blunt, and horrid sounding. Never heard of anyone naming a baby this since the 1950s.

Don is pronounced as it is spelt, DON, as in gone.
You're wrong. You need to use this site's pronunciation guide. By the guide, it would not be pronounced DON unless it rhymes with cone or bone.
Yes but I am pronouncing it like the Phon in Phonetics. Not to ryhme with Dawn. I am not pronouncing it with an American accent.
To the person who said they weren't pronouncing it with an American accent, there is no such thing. I have been all over the country and every sounds extremely different. It is pronounced, Dahn like when you say Ahh, not Dawn as in awe.
Your accent doesn't matter. Do you know how to use a pronunciation key? When you see the letters AH in a pronunciation you have to go to the key to find out what sound they represent. If you do this you find that AH represents the sound in pot and con, which is the same as the sound in phonetics and Don. The O is used to represent an entirely different sound!
