Dylan still feels poetic and romantic after years of popularity. A Welsh name tied to the sea, Dylan was a legendary sea god who prompted all the waters of Britain and Ireland to weep when he died. The name came to prominence via the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, whose name Bob Dylan adopted in tribute. It's still just outside the Top 30, so if you choose it, be aware that yours may not be the only Dylan in his class.
Dillon is another popular spelling.
