"I have the name Gannon, it's really cool but everyone thinks I say Cameron, dannon, or something like that. Signing up for things is hard because I always have to spell my name for people. And the worst part of having this name is people saying it's like cannon, like "YO GANNON THE CANNON"" Jul. 22, 2017:
