This name is of Welsh origin, composed of two elements: The persistent prefix “dy-” plus the Welsh noun and verb “llanw” (tide, to fill, to flow). The name means “great tide”. Its use as a surname stems from the adoption of the name by Bob Dylan. In Wales it was the most popular Welsh name given to babies in 2010 and recently is also used as a female name. 1) Dylan ail Don is a character in the Welsh mythic Mabinogion tales, particularly in the fourth tale, "Math fab Mathonwy". The story of Dylan reflects ancient Celtic myths that were handed down orally for some generations before being written down during the early Christian period by clerics. 2) Dylan Dog is an Italian horror comics series featuring an eponymous character (a paranormal investigator) created by Tiziano Sclavi for the publishing house Sergio Bonelli Editore.
