Levon is finally picking up some traction. Apparently in 2018, 139 boys were named Levon. I can only see this number rising, with the help of The Band's acclaimed drummer and vocalist, Levon Helm. Levon is also a great alternative to the extremely popular Levi and classic Leon. It's vintage, but not fusty, and is an absolute winner. Definitely name your child Levon if you're considering so.

The Levan spelling seems natural and I expect the same pronunciations (lee-vahn or legs-on) but spelled with a "y", I'm naturally pronounce it as Lehv-in. Not the same.

I have heard Levon pronounced with an equal emphasis on both syllables, with either a long or a short e in the first syllable. Listen to both pronunciations here:
