Dillon (M)>

Dillon (male)

Variants:Dylan (M)
Source(s): The Oxford Names Companion, OUP

An English spelling variant of Dylan, a Welsh name from Celtic "the sea", possibly meaing "son of the waves".

ONC suggests that Dillon may have been partly based on a surname from Norman French and may have also been used for someone from the place name Dilwyn in Hereford, in the English borders, but doesn't suggest this source for the name Dilwyn.
