The name Dylan comes from Welsh elements. "dy" means "great" and "llanw" means "tide, flow" so the name Dylan means Great Flow. Also in Welsh mythology Dylan was a god or hero connected with the sea. The name is the 24th most popular boys name in Canada and 31st most popular in the US. Some people that have the name Dylan are Bob Dylan a famous musician and a Welsh poet named Dylan Thomas. So that is a bit of the information that I found on the background of my name.
