The modifier 'faw' goes all the way back to Old Common and means literally the entirety of something or all of something. It also allows someone or something to be described as unharmed or undamaged. It functions as a modifier of quantity or manner. 

The term form 'fawn' in a noun context would mean the whole of something. It is much less common than the use of the modifier form. In the rare instance it would be used in a verba; context, it would be a pali verb meaning to be whole, complete or unharmed.
