Both over used - will be very dated

Buxton45 Sun 12-Mar-17 16:40:45

@Astro55 how will they date? I know lots of all different ages!

I like Dillon best.

I don't think they're overused! I only know a few of each and all different ages, but I'm in London so possibly a regional thing.

Ciaran is the worse of the two. Simply because you will burden an individual of thousands of requests of "how do you spell that" or constant mispellings.

@skerrywind - it's not my fault people can't bloody spell the original of a name.

Sorry, hate Dillon. Too much like magic roundabout. Sort of name that makes you envisage a kid that's not too clever. Sorry. Don't much like Ciaran either.

NuffSaidSam Sun 12-Mar-17 19:13:52

I would think Dillon will also often be spelled wrong, depending on where you are. Dylan is the more common spelling I think.

buxton @skerrywind - it's not my fault people can't bloody spell the original of a name.

Of course not, but it is fucking annoying. I have a difficult name, and part of the reason I chose simple easy names for my kids.

You'll be correcting spelling for a long time.

Ah Dylan/Dillon and the Magic roundabout thing - ridiculous, only people in their late forties/fifties and older even remember it anymore and nobody called Dylan/Dillon now or anytime in the last 30 years will have ever heard of it - really don think it's worth worrying about that association.

PositivePlans2017 Sun 12-Mar-17 21:25:02

I have no idea how you pronounce Ciaran? Anyone care to enlighten me? I know a little Dillon and spelled that way, it suits him and it's quite cute.

Buxton45 Sun 12-Mar-17 21:26:17

@PositivePlans2017 - it's the correct way to spell Kieran.

ToastVacuum Sun 12-Mar-17 21:28:17

The Magic Roundabout is a delightful and amusing show, and retro is cool smile An excellent association if you ask me!

ChippieBeanAndHorro Sun 12-Mar-17 21:29:46

Dillon sounds a bit like dill on. very herbal...

Bit it is nice smile

ChippieBeanAndHorro Sun 12-Mar-17 21:30:24

I think Dylan/Dillon is really nice.

Not a fan of Ciaran, tbh.

plutohasfeelingstoo Sun 12-Mar-17 21:31:24

I like them both but I think I like Ciaran better

RuthB4 Mon 13-Mar-17 07:56:20

I really like Ciaran spelt that way. And i love both Dillon and Dylan.

Gummibears Mon 13-Mar-17 08:00:36

Neither are my taste.

But maybe we have different tastes and life would be dull if we all chose similar names

TheBrightnessOfTheseDays Mon 13-Mar-17 09:17:48

I have a Dylan. Don't know any others (& no one has ever mentioned the magic roundabout thing, obviously). And Ciaran (spelt the correct way!) is also on our list for DS3. So on that basis Dillon and then Ciaran but both great names.
