Landon Name Meaning & Origin

Landon

Pronunciation: LAN-dən (key)

With a flick of the wrist, Brandon is softened to a perfect modern surname. Actor Michael Landon's three decades on the air help lend Landon an All-American glow. Its popularity varies enormously by region: it's a huge hit in the deep South and in rural areas, but much less common on the urban coasts.
