And it reminds me of bug spray. And it's just another -aiden/-aden name.
I've definitely thought "It's just another -aiden name" before. The only reason i considered it is because my husband LIKES the popular trendy names. He doesn't like Raya because it's "too weird" or "too far out there." So I made it sound more popular and trendy, and went with Rayden as a compromise. Then decided it could be a boy's name when all my friends said "uh, like Mortal Kombat?" So it was definitely a thought process for me.
But our number one boy name choice is Emmett, and I'm kind of annoyed at it's impending trendiness.
