"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?" Jun. 24, 2012:
