My daughter's Name is Dyllan
written by Amanda, October 16, 2008
I love...love this name, my best friend in high school was Dylan and I always loved this name so when my husband and I had our first child, we named her Dyllan. We added the extra L, because I wanted it to be abit different. Her name is Dyllan Taylor and is 12 now. We have only known 1 other girl Dyllan. It's good to see other girls with this name.
I named my daughter Dylan too...

She is now 5 and I couldn't imagine a more perfect name for her. Her name is Dylan Mariah and though some friends were skeptical at first they say it suits her. Everyone she is introduced to loves it. Only problem is if she isn't around I have to say my DAUGHTER Dylan and even when I do people still think I have a boy. Oh well. I think its a great name.

I have a cousin named Dylan. He is sooooo cute! He will be a real girl catcher for sure once he's older!
My daughter is also Dylan
written by Anna Hansford, May 04, 2010
My 16 month-old daughter is called Dylan Rose. My husband suggested it and it really stuck with us, we couldn't settle on any other name and just kept coming back to Dylan. It is a bit frustrating when people say 'he' but I guess Dylan is more common for a boy. It's cheeky, cute and a bit tomboyish, perfect for her!
Dylan Paul
written by Lillian Henshaw, May 14, 2010
My little brother's name is Dylan Paul. I love the name... He's quite the little heart breaker =) I couldn't think of a more suitable name for him
Love It:)
written by Chandler Moore, May 22, 2010
Even though most people would name a male Dylan, I love it for a girl. If I ever get a baby girl.. I am so naming her Dylan:) My mom's close friend has a daughter named Dylan and is probably the cutest, most lovable little girl I have ever met!
Dylan James
written by Amethyst Ocean, September 15, 2010
When I found out Dylan means "son of the sea", I was so happy. I picked this name because of Drew Barrymore's character in Charlie's Angels. I fell in love with the name instantly. The ocean means alot to me; it's a symbol of my happy childhood. It's almost as if it was fate. I had unknowingly picked a name that ended up having a very deep meaning to me. My son is definitely a Dylan. Dylan James just flows so beautifully.
