Faron \f(a)-ron\ as a boy's name is pronounced fah-ROHN. It is of Old English origin, and the meaning of Faron is "handsome servant". From "faeger hine". May also have derived as an Old English occupational name for oxen herders, or from the Gaelic personal name Faramund, which might mean "thunder". Also possibly from a French surname which was derived from the German given name Faro. Saint Faro (seventh century) was a French bishop.
