    I can see the appeal of Talon, but I can't not think "claw" when I hear it. I actually had a manager named Talon once, during a summer job while I was in college, and I remember hearing that mental record scratch sound effect when I was first introduced to him.

    I immediately went to "the claw."

    People don't automatically make the connection? Looks like the responses shot that theory, unfortunately. To me, it is most definitely obvious. Like naming your kid Feather, Scale, Whisker, Fang, Tusk.

    What else is there to say about it? That's what a talon IS!

    I prefer sound-alike Fallon. I know one, though she is female, and she wears it well.

    Yeah, the only mental image Talon gives me is a hawk swooping down out of the sky and snatching its prey. I don't like it as a name. Sorry.

    I knew a couple who named their baby this. I really dislike it; to me, it feels like another of those "trying too hard to be tough and manly" names.
