Meaning:Born from the sea; Great tide
Dylana is a more feminine form of the gender-neutral Dylan, a Welsh name meaning “born from the sea” and “great tide.” Famously borne by Dylan ail Don, Dylana comes steeped in Welsh mythological wonder. In the Welsh Mabinogion tales, Dylan ail Don is interpreted as a sea god and as a god of darkness. Together with his twin brother Lleu, they represent the twin forces of light and dark—putting Lleu forward as a potential sibling name with yin-yang vibes. Dylana flows like waves with its additional “a,” making the tongue ripple when spoken. Parents diving for sea names may love Dylana for its oceanic force and connection to an ancient Celtic sea god.
