Egon is a Germanic name that is peculiar in its own right, but in a good way. It makes a statement. Although anyone would think you named little Egon after Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters, it's still a respectable name.

I love this name. Althought, Egan meaning "little fire" sounds better to me. I don't know, since I live in America Egon is not old fashioned it's just slightly odd. I've never met an Egon or an Egan. I hope people start accepting this name more. It's a very strong name.
