Middle name for Fallon?

Just brainstorming a load of name. Fallon is on the list if we have a girl but struggling to think of a middle name that flows with it 🤔

Any suggestions?

I know twin girls- Fallon and Kirby.
both have got family names in the middle (think traditional Elizabeth etc)

Honestly, even if people do think Dynasty, Fallon Carrington is not a bad association at all. She is an extremely successful business woman, determined, strong and by the end of the series focused on improving the world for her child.

and for people who have not seen the new version on netflix, it is soooooo good.

OP, it’s a perfectly nice name and congrats on the baby. I hope you find a combination of names you like.

I do think though that this thread serves a purpose in making you aware that you will absolutely be asked whether you are a Dynasty (or Archers) fan quite a lot!

My friend Fallon was horrendously bullied because of her name - eg ‘Fall on the floor’ and pushed over.

I'm 29. Never watched an episode. Don't think I ever will 🤣

We just have the name on our list because we like it.. not because we've watched Dynasty 🤣🤣🤣

My comment wasnt supposed to be a criticism of the name. I actually really like the name. Like the character in the series too.
I was just mentioning the remake because people said the series is so old and most wont remember it.
My children are named after famous tv characters of their time. One intentionally and one where ive never heard of the series. People point it out sometimes, bit its never bothered me. If youre fine with that then go for it!

Fallon is a lovely name. Fallon Sherrock is a role model and stereotype-breaker. The name is Irish (ish) and means "superior"or descended from a ruler". Don't be put off by people who've only heard the name on Dynasty! Anything classic goes well with it. So does almost any one-syllable name. And it rhymes with gallon.

The first name that springs to mind is Fox. Sadly that's not a good thing.

Fallon Elizabeth is the standout for me, I think it sounds odd with 1 or 2 syllable middle names!

I believe It’s quite a common traveller name. My cousin’s wife was part of the traveller community and knows about 5.

For a middle name, I think a 2 syllable name flows best - eg: Elizabeth, Rosalie, Sophia.

All the best.

Not one of those examples is a 2 syllable name 😂

Bloody hell, this place!

For the hard of understanding, OP was NOT asking for opinions on the name Fallon, but for suggestions on middle names.

Bizarrely (well not, actually) I'm in my 50s and wouldn't know the names of characters from Dynasty, as I never watched it.

I like the name Fallon, and no, it doesn't sound like "fall on".

I know that when I’m recruiting someone for a job and see the name Fallon I’ll instantly go to Dynasty and have preconceived ideas about that person

How ridiculous and unprofessional of you.
