Comments for the name Dylan

Comments for DYLAN:

Pronounced DIL-an.

As a Welsh speaker, I advise it should ALWAYS be pronounced "Dul- an", as the letter "y" in the first syllable of a Welsh name is generally pronounced this way, with subsequent syllables containing "y" being said as an EE or I sound. It infuriates me when people get it wrong - it is disrespectful to the Welsh language and the origins of the word.

Pronounced "DUHL-EN".

Note that the original Welsh pronunciation of the name would rhyme more closely with "dull-in" than "dill" (as in dill pickles), even so I honestly think that the "dill" pronunciation is much more acceptable in the United States. I'm sure a reference to pickles as opposed to being a dull person is much easier to deal with!
