Name Meaning

English, Irish, and French: from the Norman French personal name Dillon, arising from the ancient Germanic Dillo (of uncertain origin, perhaps a byname from the root dil- ‘destroy’).

English: habitational name from Dilwyn in Herefordshire, recorded in 1138 as Dilun, probably from Old English dīglum, dative plural of dīgle ‘settlement at the shady or secret places’.

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Duilleáin ‘descendant of Duilleán’, a personal name, a variant of Dallán meaning ‘little blind one’.
