Pronounced DIL-ees.

Contrary to the comment above, Dilys is not pronounced dil-ees, it is pronounced dil-iss. The y is pronounced as if it were the I in "industry". At least that's how it's pronounced here in Wales, where it was invented. And it is a lovely name. :)

It was once a fictional headmistress at Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter series. She was also a doctor at St. Mungo's.

Dilys Derwent from Harry Potter series was not a doctor. She was an healer.

For some reason this sounds masculine to me. Maybe because of its similarity to Dylan.

"Dilys" (pronounced dil'-iss) is a Welsh adjective, meaning "genuine" or "real," used as a female first name. It is often found on legal BMD certificates denoting the certificate as authentic.
