Dillon is an Irish surname (although not Gaelic in origin) which means "loyal and true". It was introduced into Ireland from France during the Anglo-Norman invasion in the 1200s. Dylan is unrelated to Dillon, it is a first name of Welsh origin.

The name Dillon can be literally translated to "man from the sea."

As was said before Dillon means "faithful". Dylan has to do with the sea. Dillon is usually a surname, Dylan is a first name. Dillon is Irish and Dylan is Welsh. In other words they mean two completely different things with two completely different origins.

I like this name, and prefer the spelling "Dillon" to "Dylan." As said before me, the two names are unrelated.

I prefer Dylan over Dillon, but both are nice names.

Dillon means "faithful" (it's my brother's name).
Dylan means "of the sea" (it's my cousin's name).

It seems like yet another attempt to be "different". Just stick with Dylan.

Haha ... it has dill in it. As you, "You big dill".

Dillon is the older spelling (being taken from the surname) so Dylan is the poser. My boyfriend's name is Dillon and he hates it. His sister nicknamed him Dill pickle among other things (if you think about it, you will get it). People are constantly misspelling and mispronouncing his name. The most common issue is that people try to spell it Dylan or Dillion.

A very cute name for a young boy, but I think I would have trouble taking it seriously as a name for a grown man.

I think this spelling is more masculine than "dylan". I love the name Dillon James and plan to use it one day.
