Other Origin(s):British, German, Norse
Daylan is a form of Daylon, a modern American name with an unknown meaning usually given to boys. Daylon is a form of Waylon, which may derive from the Germanic and Old Norse Wēlandaz, meaning “brave in battle” and “courageous fighter.” Another anglicized form of this ancient name is Wayland, a name borne by the legendary Wayland the Smith in German and Norse mythologies, meaning “land by the road.” While Daylan doesn’t have a meaning of its own, who’s stopping you from bestowing the heroic elements of its roots on baby? Smooth and easy on the ears, Daylan is an impressive choice for the new warrior (or master blacksmith) of your home.
