I love this for a girl. I don't know why Nameberry thinks it's "more appropriate for a boy." The sound is similar to Robin or Wren, other bird names commonly used for girls. If it's because falcons are birds of prey and thus more fierce while songbirds are seen as gentle, well...that's just reinforcing sexist, outdated ideas about how boys can supposedly be wild and get away with murder while girls have to be meek and demure. Time to move past the 50s, Nameberry.

I personally love this name as it, yet again, reminds me of my childhood. A falcon is a bird found in the Arabian wild. I would love to have a daughter one day. I would call her Arabia Falcon, after what I now consider my home. I lived in Doha from the ages of 6 till 18.
