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]
