  • "We pronounce his name All-ton (like the town) but a lot of people say Al-ton (like the Cheff). Either way is fine. My only issue is people drop the "t" calling him all-en. Maybe 3 people have called him Elton. Comments I hear : 1 - Thats a different name. 2- That was my grandpa or great grandfathers name! 3- Is he named after Atlon Brown? 4- Do you know who Alton Brown is?"
