Allon (אלון) is a Hebrew language word meaning "oak tree", which may refer to:

  • Yigal Allon, an Israeli politician.
    • Allon Road, named after Yigal Allon.
    • Allon an Israeli settlement east of Jerusalem, also named after Yigal Allon.

It may also have Biblical meanings:

  • Allon - oak. The expression in the Authorized Version of Book of Joshua 19:33, "from Allon to Zaanannim," is more correctly rendered in the Revised Version, "from the oak in Zaanannim." The word denotes some remarkable tree which stood near Zaanannim, and which served as a landmark.
  • Allon, the son of Jedaiah, of the family of the Simeonites, who expelled the Hamites from the valley of Gedor (1 Chr. 4:37).
