Not in my opinion, no.

No. .
Many worse names being suggested on mn at this very minute!!

My son is Dylan so it's a no from me grin

I wish people would stop all this 'chavvy' buisiness! It's just plain nasty.

I've heard names on here that have been deemed 'chavvy' used by professional, middle class families and so called posh names used by people fro working (or non working ) class backgrounds.
Just use a name if it works for you.

Dylan is a great name.

I personally simply dislike the name. Not because I think it's "chavvy".

Mrsknackered Fri 07-Apr-17 17:16:26

No, I wouldn't call it 'chavvy' but hate that term anyway.

I'd probably say it is to be honest [dons flameproof suit and quickly disappears in a flash of smoke]

I hate the word chavvy.

Dylan is a nice name.

A bit, yes

MumBod Fri 07-Apr-17 17:25:47

It's cool.

Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas.

No, but it is common, as in there's a lot of them around.

Itaintme Fri 07-Apr-17 17:28:51

It's only 'chavvy" to the sort of person who likes to look down on people.

Who cares what they think.

How are you pronouncing it? To a Welsh speaker it would be pronounced as "Dullan.
Dillon/Dillon is the anglicised version.

Also is for a girl or a boy? Technically it is a Welsh boy's name.

A wee bit for a boy. A massive bit for a girl. Even more so if it's spelled Dylanne.

Dowwie Fri 07-Apr-17 17:41:31

The anglicised pronunciation (for a boy) smile

LockedOutOfMN Fri 07-Apr-17 17:46:21

I like Dylan for a boy.

LynetteScavo Fri 07-Apr-17 17:48:57


But there if so many of them around here it's not cool anymore.

Every Dylan love ever met has been lovely.

MidnightSheep Fri 07-Apr-17 19:43:45

I meant to say it's a fab name however you pronounce it smile

anon050 Fri 07-Apr-17 21:24:08

It's a bit common now.

DramaAlpaca Fri 07-Apr-17 22:24:52

I like Dylan, it's fine.

What I don't like is people referring to names as 'chavvy'. It's a horrible, offensive word.

I like it smile
