Ahh cool. I didn’t know this word in particular existed. I only knew it as chillón/chillona.
And I was the opposite. I didn’t learn about chillón/chillona until way later when I learned about chillar “to scream”. So in that sense, chillón/chillona and llorón/llorona are synonymous for “crybaby”.
I did however learn that chillón/chillona can be used to for “obnoxious” or “overly bright”. Like el (color) rosado chillón means “hot pink”. Like… “screaming over-the-top blindingly pink”.
And I think that’s lovely.
