Dylan is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Dylan.

In Welsh mythology Dylan was the god of the sea, so if you’re water-lovers, this name may be perfect for you. While it’s always experienced modest popularity, it got a huge boost in the early 90s with the advent of a certain little show called Beverly Hills, 90210 and its resident bad-boy, Dylan McKay. No longer just a boys’ name, there has recently been a rise in females named Dylan. Boy or girl, it still sounds cool.
