Dillon Genealogy & History

The surname Dillon has several possible derivations. The first possibility refers to Dilwyn or Dilun in Herefordshire, England, which derives from the Old English "diglum", a retreat. Another possible derivation is the Germanic personal name "Dillo", meaning "destroyer". Dillon genealogy indicates the family came to Ireland during the Anglo-Norman Invasion of 1169. Dillon family history also shows there may be an Irish derivation. In this case, the name derives either from de Leon or is an anglicization of the Gaelic "O'Duilleain", meaning descendant of the blind one. Dillon may also mean faithful. Dillon genealogy includes actor Matt Dillon.
