    Dyl the dog - as in 'I'm Dill the dog, I'm a dog called Dill' from the Herbs.

    And there's that song 'I am the music man. I come from down your way. What do you play etc..'

    And don't forget our Music Man has had a whole show written about him, even if he does have to put up with 76 trombones :shock:

    As for our Roger, I reckon he must be a budding ornithologist - anyone remember "The Thorne Birds" :?: :wink: :lol:

    Woof!

    I've had this conversation loads of times - it's not pronounced 'Dill'! It's pronounced 'Dull' - and before anyone says it - Dull by name, dull by nature - that's me! :roll: :?

    who in their right mind would call a kid "Dullan?"

    That's setting yourself up for years of therapy sessions, and the kid up for years of being picked on @ schoo!!!!

    Not forgetting, spotted in many public houses and food stores, the almighty packet of snacks commonly known as Twigglets.

    [rant]I'm not called Dullan - my name is DYLAN. I'm just pointing out the PROPER way of pronouncing this most Welsh of names before it was stolen by people who don't speak the language![/rant]

    Sorry about getting your name wrong. Not wanting to insult you any further I have consulted a welsh pronounciation page
    http://wiccachile.tripod.com/moon/welsh.htm
    And I see you are really called - Dullan Ooithleearms

    And just to prove how slow I'm getting these days I'd hadn't put two and two together until you just pointed it out!. DOH!

    Don't think you'll find WhatSharp? many places.
