Alternatives for Dylan
Just found out that I am expecting my first! It's been a long time coming so we are very happy. As someone who has had plenty of years to ponder the possibilities I have a good amount of baby names picked out. I myself have an unusual name and as I've grown older I love that my name is very rare.
We have a girl's name all set (favorite literary character and a long standing family name; even able to become a cheerful nickname) but a boy's name we are similarly passionate about still eludes us.
Dylan has long been in my top 10 as it has a lot of what we are looking for (literary/artistic/heritage), but it is very common now and that puts me off a bit. I'm open to all suggestions!
Congratulations on your pregnancy! :) The name Dylan makes me think of:

Good luck! :)
what about Rylan or Tyler?
Just curious, what is your girl name if you don't mind sharing?! I'm intrigued by your description!
Dylan is on yhe way down in popularity. I think the spelling Dillon is much less popular (and still legitimate). If you're really worried about popularity, you could go with something like Declan or Liam but I'd say if Dylan is the name you really love, use it.
