Name of the Week: Dylan

The Name of the Week is Dylan. What do you think? I’ve always been a fan. Here’s what’s great about Dylan:

  • It has a lovely meaning – “sea”
  • Despite being an old name, it still feels very contemporary
  • It’s fairly popular without having been in the Top 10 – Dylan peaked at #19 for boys on the SSA charts in 2003 and 2004
  • It’s become a unisex name. Dylan entered the girl’s SSA chart in 1993 and has been becoming more popular. It ranked #394 in 2014.

FUN FACT: In researching my Poet-Inspired Names post, I learned that Dylan Thomas was named after the sea god from Celtic mythology.

What do you think of the name Dylan?

If you want to get a copy of my Dylan definition digital download, I sell them over in my LetterLuxe Printables shop. It makes a great baby shower gift.

Happy naming ♥ Amanda
