It's funny to me how everyone on here hates the -Aiden names

I was hugely obsessed with Caden-- right until I found JM. That corrected that very quickly! I'm on the opposite bandwagon now, and I can admit that I can't stand the TREND. I like the names themselves. Haden is a nice name, Caden feels strong, Brayden makes sense as an extension and revamp of the popular 80's and 90's Brandon. Aiden made the leap due to the increased interest in Irish/Scottish names that provided parents with something "new but not too weird".

I just can't stand the TREND of it though.

I totally agree. It is not that I think most of the -Aiden names are awful, I'm just sick and tired of all the different variations! I've always liked Aiden, but as a teacher, when you have Hayden, Jayden, Caiden, Aidan, Braydon, etc. to keep track of, it gets really annoying!!!

And Melissa, your girls have beautiful names. Neither feels stuffy or old fashioned to me AT ALL!

As for the pp who was saying using Hayden was the worst mistake of her life... ummm, you loved the name, your DH loves the name, and your SON loves his name! That's all that matters. Stop beating yourself up over choosing a name that you loved. So what if it is popular? Popularity comes second to truly loving a name in my book. I'd much rather pick a name that I loved that happened to be popular, than pick a name I didn't truly love just because I wanted a "unique" name.

I love most of the -aiden names, Aiden is the one we have considered for a future son of ours but I think we have decided that we'd rather him have a name that is less trendy so Benjamin is our pick right now.

I love the names, Hayden, Aiden, Braiden, but for some reason, I dislike Jayden.

The only one I really truly like is Caden. I would use it regardless of what people would say later. Heck look at my daughter, Isabella, lol.

I don't dislike the -Aiden names, but I do know four people irl that just had babies and named them Caden, Brayden, Xaden, Jayden. I think it'll just be dated in 20 or so years. Like if you hear certain names now, we think of them as "old lady names" because that name/style was popular during x era. I think that's how the -aiden names will be in the future.
They're not personally my style, but I think they're cute, and if you decide to name your child that I don't think anyone should say anything negative about it. I mean names are popular for a reason. :]

Hayden, Aidan, and Jaden (all spellings) are becoming too popular too fast. Every TV show now has a character with one of the forementioned names. Hayden Pennetierre (sp??) launched the name Hayden after that show of hers. Ghost Whisperer's Jim and Melinda had a son named Aiden. And I'm sure you can find a Jaden on almost Disney Channel show.

I love love the name Aidan. However I'd want to use it on a girl and my DH refuses to allow our daughters to have boy names!

I like the Aiden names.....but we have a few close family/friends that have boys names Aiden, so I wouldn't use it.


But if no one in the family had it, I would consider it

I love Aiden & Caden 5 letters ending in an N. You can't get more perfect than that

Hi ajajcdkbrgbbb,

Thank you for your kind words. You are absolutely right. You really helped me. You are a very kind person and thank you so much. I feel bad about writing what I did in the first place as a matter of fact. Could you please erase where you quoted me? I am just afraid my cutie or his daddy might see that quote someday.

All the best to you and yours,
Norloon

I dont mind the those kind of names its just that I like more unpopular names and after seeing the trend hit so hard everywhere it just made me not want to use the names as much. With that said I still liked the name Aidan a lot so I choose it for my dog instead

You should watch out then, cause Drake is probably going to blow up here soon. I know 5 kids named Drake, and another girl who wanted to name her baby Drake but changed her mind when she found out how popular it was getting. That's just in my little tiny town. *sigh* I didn't know Aiden was going to get popular when I had my Aiden, but at the same time I don't care because I really like strong Irish names for boys, and it went well with Konnor, which i was determined to be his middle name. That's why I didn't name my second son Jasper, because I was afraid it would get popular because of Twilight. lol
