Subject: Help with Indian boy names, please!

Hi, I'm expecting a baby boy later this year and would like to give him an Indian name that wouldn't be too difficult for westerners to pronounce. I like the names Kavi, Rahul and Dhilan.

My questions are:

1. How is Dhilan pronounced (I found it on an Indian baby name website)? Is it like "Dylan" or more like "Dhee-lahn"?
2. What does Dhilan mean?!
3. How is Rahul pronounced? Is it pronounced with the "h" silent as in "Raul" or is the "h" pronounced as in "Ra-hool"?

Thanks ever so much for your help.
