It sounds like it's jumping on the -aidan bandwagon.

Kagen.. makes me think of Pagan and Kegels.

Either one.. not a very great reference.

I def don't lke it for a boy. .I think it sounds girly.

No, it's not. It's tryndee masquerading as Irish. Traditional Irish would be something like Keegan.

I also like Keegan much better than Kagan. It seems like a more solid name to me.

Even if Kagan is traditional Celtic, it still looks and sounds like one of the new made-up names that always end with the -en sound. A la Caden, Jaden, Zaden and whatever-else -en. They are not bad names per se, just trendy. Don't know if that's what you're aiming for.

sorry but everything i read on it says its a gael name, dating back over a few hundred years

i'm sure i'll just be told how incredibly dumb and wrong i am, but that is what all my research has stated

You're not dumb. If you've done research and you think it's right, then what does it matter what other people say? Kagen is a last name of a politician where I am at and after hearing his name on every other commercial during the last election, I honestly don't like it. It's just a bad association for me. It's definitely not the worst name I've heard and if you like it, go for it!
