Chaillu is the name of an Apabhraṃśa poet quoted in the Svayambhūchandas of Svayambhū (8th century A.D.).—Besides Govinda and Caturmukha, eight other Apabhraṃśa poets are named and quoted in the Svayambhūchandas: Chaillu (two verses), Ajjadevu, Jiṇāsu, Dhaṇadevu, Dhuttu, Māuradevu, Viaḍḍhu and Suddhasīlu (one each, all names here in Apabhraṃśa form as given in the text). Nothing seems now to be known of any of these poets [viz., Dhaṇadevu] except that they are quoted here.
