Name Dylan - Meaning and origin

Origin of first name:


Meaning of the name:

Name of a Welsh deity. In Welsh mythology, Dylan is the "son of waves". This name has long been confined to Wales. It then spread to all English-speaking countries. The fact that singer Bob Zimmermann chooses Bob Dylan as the artist's name in honor of the poet Dylan Thomas probably explains this popularity. In France, Dylan arrived in the 1990s at the same time as the wave of the American series, and had a dazzling success. It continues to be awarded regularly. The Dylans are celebrated on September 4th with Marin. San Marino, stonemason in Rimini (4th century), retreated to a mountain to escape a woman who claimed to be his wife. Its derivatives: Dilan, Dyllan, Dylon, Dyllon, Dylonn.
