Aden is good, strong name. On the popularity lists of 2004, both Aidan and Aiden, which are very closely related to Aden, were among the top 100.

I prefer Aidan or better yet, naming your child not off of some fad name!

The Middle Eastern, very old City, Region, Country of that name, used as a name.

Masculine from the female name of Ade, which is an alternate spelling of Ada or Adda, short for a number of names or as a name. Spelled interchangebly with Adin.

I like it spelt Aaden like on Jon and Kate Elus Eight. :)

Aden is my favorite spelling of Aiden. I just don't like names beginning with two vowels.

This is the name of a port in Yemen. It is not a human name, although parents just want a kreatyv spyllyng of the "name" Aidan.

This is a trendy name and the spelling makes it worse.

This name is so tacky. We don't need all of these ugly kryativ spellings.

I think it looks rather ugly, as if it should be pronounced AH-den. Stick to Aidan or Aiden, please.

My grandfathers middle name was Aden spelt this way and he was born in 1909. I hardly think this is just a trendy and kreatyve way to spell Aidan.

This is a city in the Middle East. This is not a human name, and is the equivalent of naming your son "Dubai," "Tehran," or "Damascus." Also, -Aden names in general are extremely overused and the antithesis of creativity. Please don't use this as a name.

Actually, my above comment is mistaken (I'm sorry). This is actually a commonly-used male name in Somalia, and was borne by two Somali presidents. It can also be spelled "Aaden."

Actually this name is Yemeni/Somali... it is pronounced Ah-den NOT ay-den. And this is coming from someone who IS Somali.

This shouldn't be listed as modern; unlike its trendy counterparts Aidan, Aiden, Ayden, etc., it is listed as having brief usage in the 1800s.
