This is *NOT* a female name. Aidan is an old, established, and handsome male Irish name.

My son is named Aidan and he is VERY handsome. As is the actor Aidan Quinn.

I love the name Aidan, especially for a little girl. This is the name of one of my daughters.
-- Anonymous User  7/23/2005
Has been used more popularly in the United States as feminine in recent years.
Also, all of you saying that Aidan can NEVER be used as a female name and it's "just horrible," remember that there are people who come here and comment on their own name.

@I love the name Aidan, especially for a little girl. This is the name of one of my daughters.

Mom?

@My name is Aidan, and I'm a girl. I find it silly that people seem so upset that someone would dare use this name as a name for a girl.

I think it's a wonderful, strong name, and it works just as well for a female as it does a male.

I love my name! I'm a girl, 14, and everybody thinks it's cool that I have a guys name. I think it's cool for a girl, and it fits really well with my personality. My name is flipping awesome!

I really, really don't like this name at all. I'm not quite sure why. I just don't.

I like this name at first but then I had to think about why there was something about it I did not like. When you say it out loud I now think about the disease Aids. What a shame but it's true. I would not name my son Aidan for fear he might get Aids.

What was that nonsense about AIDS? What has a name got to do with your chances of contracting a virus? I better warn my cousin Aiden, he should get a blood test right away!

Aidan is a good name. I find it nothing out of the ordinary, but it is a good, masculine name.
-- TriwizardChamp3  2/1/2006
This is a fine masculine name. It is definitely *not* a unisex name.

My cousin's name is Aidan Hamilton K___. He is 17 years old and his names definitely reflect his strong personality. Aidan is a very strong and handsome boy's name.
-- Bex  2/16/2006
I almost used this name when I was pregnant with my son, but it sounded too much like my oldest son's name. I would have never used it for a girl because I think it is sad to take a popular boy name and stick it on a girl. She will be stuck all through school having 2 or 3 boys with the same name in every class, and she will be the odd one out.
-- alliyah1  2/21/2006
Means 'fiery'.
-- Gwendelyn  2/21/2006
I like this name for a boy. I just don't know if I would prefer the spelling Aidan or Aiden. I have also seen it spelt Aydan, Ayden, Aydon, Aden and Adin.
-- Anonymous User  4/26/2006
I love this name for a boy and boy only! It is masculine and fiery. I loved this name for forever and then it starting getting so popular that I don't think that I would name my son Aidan anymore. But I adore it!

Aidan is Irish for fiery. It has been gaining popularity over the past couple of years, some statistics saying that it is the #1-used name.
-- puzzlepiano  6/25/2006
This name should not be used for girls. It is a very masculine name. If you are considering using it for your daughter, please reconsider.
-- Anonymous User  7/2/2006
I like this name, but I hate it spelled this way. I don't know why. I like it spelled Ayden or Aiden, but not Aidan. I also think it's insanely overused. I could see using it for a girl, but maybe spelled differently. It's not just now that people are using this as a girl's name, either. The actress who played the older sister in the movie Andre is named Aidan.
-- skatergirl2  7/30/2006
I can't get why Aidan and all the names that rhyme with it are getting to be so popular these days. I like other popular names, like Emily, but I just don't like these names.

This is my name, except it's spelled Aydan. It's my father's middle name. My dad always says that I fit my name really well, and I think it looks better the way it's spelled.

I like this name. If I had a son I'd name him Aedan, but I think I'd use it as a middle name. And I'd never use it for a girl.

I personally love the name Aidan. Well that is because it is my name. I am a girl by the way, and I think it suits me quiet well. It has not been until recently that I have begun to see a lot more "Aidans" though I have yet to meet another female Aidan. I love my name.
-- Daydreamz  1/21/2007
I SWEAR THAT I HATE THIS NAME! First off, Aidan is the most delicate name ever. Every single boy who is named Aidan is a girly man/boy and probably wants to be a girl. Aidan is now becoming an overused name and is spawning many different variations of it such as Hayden. My personal favorite copycat name is Maiden. Yes folks, Maiden is a boy's name that is a "spin-off" of Aidan. This name is girly, stupid, it sounds horrible, and it's overused. Now of course, I am going to have a million people who disagree with me and are going to say that what I am saying is not true. But I don't care. Because when it all boils down, PEOPLE WHO NAME THEIR KIDS AIDAN ARE OUT OF TOUCH AND ARE NEW AGE FREAKS! 'Nuff said.
-- newguineafan  2/4/2007
I like this name but would never use it due to its insane popularity and all the names like. Such as Hayden and others like Raiden. And just to clarify, it isn't just used by out of touch people and new age freaks. Some people do use it to honor their Irish heritage.
-- Anonymous User  2/8/2007
I think I want to barf every time I see this name. Not because it's incredibly ugly (although I don't know what kind of nicknames the kids at school will get out of it. Aid?) but because I've seen it used and parodied (Caden? Hayden? MAIDEN?) so many times on members of EITHER gender. Honestly, people. Not everyone wants to have this name. With tons of friends whose names rhyme with theirs.

I wish this name wasn't so incredibly popular, because I really love it, and wish I could use it on a son of my own (granted, I am fourteen and won't reproduce for at least another ten years, but still).
-- nothingshortoftragic  3/24/2007
I like this name but it's too popular. I prefer it on boys, as was of course the way it was originally used. At least it's an authentic Gaelic name, not something someone made up like Jaden.
-- Anonymous User  4/1/2007
It's popular, yes, but it's still nice name for boy and ONLY for a boy. It fits little boys, but doesn't sound ridiculous for an old man, either.
-- Yippal  4/8/2007
It is a boy's name and with a fáda on the second a (Aidán) it can be pronounced A-dawn.

I know a guy named Aidan and he's definitely not a girly man nor does he have A.I.D.S. Anyway, I like this name, but I wouldn't use it because it's way too overused.

It's a fad name, and I dislike fad names with a passion.
-- spaz123  7/18/2007
I named my first born son Aidan because I have always loved the name. I especially liked the fact that it was relatively uncommon. Unfortunately, in the last two years I have been hearing it everywhere. Whilst I'm glad other people find it beautiful, I'm a little bit sad that the name is losing some of its charm and originality.
-- Anonymous User  7/19/2007
My name is Aidan, and I'm a 14 year old guy. I always liked my name, until recently. Now it seems that every boy under the age of four has this name, or some variation (Aiden, Caden, Jayden, Ayden). Plus people always spell my name weird (Adain, Aiden, Aydin, Aden).

Also, some kids at school call me AIDS. For the longest time I loved my name, because it celebrated my Scottish heritage, but now it's become more of a burden. I'm thinking of going by my middle name, since it's impossible to spell it wrong.

I think Aidan is a great name for a guy. I would love to name my kid this. (man I like too many names I'll need to have like 50 kids just to use all of the names I like!) LOL.
-- aja3  8/8/2007
What is with all the comments saying "Aidan is a boy's name, and a boy's name only! Blah blah blah!" Aidan sounds slightly feminine, and I feel that it fits both males and females. It is more of a boy's name, because of its usage over the years, but it can be used for girl too. My cousin's name is Aidan, and she's a 15 year old girl.

Silly name given to their sons by Americans who only have the most tenuous and superficial connection to Irish culture, and little connection to their own, but who want to capitalize on Irish trendiness. The kind of people who probably couldn't even find Ireland on the map. Skip this name, prospective parents.

Get over yourself, and the use of Aiden. We chose it simply because we like it, and not because of any "tenuous and superficial connection to Irish culture".

Is it not meant to be Aidán with a fádá over the a. So it's pronounced A-dawn, not A-din. In my experience anyway.

Why would anyone want to name their daughter this name? When you name a girl a boy name, you not only sound ridiculous and trendy, but you take away enough of the masculinity of the name for it to sound weird on a boy, but on a girl is sounds WAYYYY too butchy. So in truth you ruin the name for both genders. Why would you want to give a girl a name that has been a male name for perhaps thousands of years? Why not give a daughter the name Samuel, Steven, Jonathan, Markus, or Robert as well? Let us face it, many Gaelic MALE names have a SLIGHT feminine ring to them, to a Anglo ear. Because Anglo names for men are rough, often macho and meaning things like spears and helmets and such. While there is nothing wrong with that, there is CERTAINLY nothing wrong with a male name that means Warmth or any such thing and is more melodious to the ear.

Give girls the names of noble women, and give boys the names of men. Please!

Why do we in America have to take things from other parts of the world, or our own past history and bastardize it and make it a ridiculous cliche, or a trend? Why can't we just leave some things as they always have been, like gender-linked names.
-- Anonymous User  2/11/2008
My wife and I named our son Aiden because we simply like the name. No connection to Irish heritage or a famous person. We just like the way it sounds, masculine yet not too rough, and THOUGHT it was uncommon. Only after we had settled on it did we find out how popular it is - and all the names that sounds like it. We are certainly disappointed about that, but ultimately we are happy with our choice and I have never seen a more appropriately named child. He is certainly a fiery spirit!
-- sbaraldi  4/20/2008
My best friend in the entire world is named Aidan. She is a girl. I do not think it suits a little boy as much. Her name matches her red hair and her "firey" personality. I think it suits girls just as much as guys and that it is a lovely name.
-- laureneliselove  4/30/2008
It's a very cool name, but sadly when I'm older it'll be like, "oooh it's my dad's name!"
-- cheeseface  5/14/2008
I love this name, but the fact that this name has become so disgustingly popular and common is enough of a reason for me not to use it, even as a middle name. One day, we'll have insufferable jocks, frat boys, and Republican politicians by this name in this world because Americans have started to overuse the name. It pains me to think about it, but I think we can easily say that this beautiful name isn't what it used to be, or won't be when that inevitably happens. This name also rhymes with other immensely popular and common names in America today, and will thus get negative reactions. Too bad, because I used to be able to associate the name with something like Waltz for Aidan, a beautiful track by Mogwai. I think this name sounds plain weird on females, especially to those who are actually used to this name being masculine, which it is. If you like this for a girl, you could always pick Ada, right? Kind of like you pick Brenda rather than Brendan, Julia rather than Julian, Eva rather than Evan, etc etc. The name isn't one of those ridiculously masculine names, but it doesn't really even strike me as a tomboy name or a name for androgynous females, let alone indie rocker types, who'd rather not have such a trendy, overused name.
-- slight night shiver  5/14/2008
I really like this name. I live in the Netherlands where I only know one boy with this name and he is half Turkish so it's probably not even this name at all. I'd like to give this to a son for a middle name later but I'm afraid that ten years from now the name will be "so 2000's" which would be a shame because it's really a beautiful name.
-- renee06  5/17/2008
My brother was named Aidan after my mother's friend from Ireland suggested it [after first pushing for Quiggley, ew] back in 1995. At first most people commented on how unusual it was. Then, when he was about 5 or 6, we started meeting little girls named Aidan, and people began butchering the spelling. But the real kicker for me was that every one of these people who started using Aidan/Aiden/Ayden/Aydin/etc. thought that they were so orginal. Please, stop using Aidan for a female and stop butchering the spelling. It is a fine name as it is, there is no need for you to be "different". Because you're just being different like everybody else.
-- akaZsa  6/7/2008
About five years ago, I would've said 'Hey, what a great name! It's so unusual and unheard of!' Now it seems like everybody has heard of this name. In fact, every childless couple I meet seems to want to name one of their children Aidan.
-- IronTears  6/14/2008
All right, for all of you simple-minded people that think that this name is ONLY for boys, then you have got to be kidding me. Aidan is a UNISEX name. And for those of you that do not understand the meaning of UNISEX, here is a definition:

Unisex name: A unisex name is a name that can be used for both boys AND girls.

Aidan is a strong and beautiful name. Personally it sounds soft and feminine to me, but also strong. It is a beautiful name and bears a beautiful meaning. ANYONE, girl or boy, who has this named is blessed with a wonderful name. So for all of you who think this is a bad name or is not suited for girls, think again. My name is Aidan, and yes, I am a girl. It's perfect for both sexes, so please be more considerate and think before you trash people's names, especially one so beautiful.
-- sunshinesketches  6/20/2008
But it's NOT really a unisex name. It's ALWAYS been a boys name until very very recently. For centuries it was completely masculine. Your usage is weak enough that pretty much anything can be a unisex name. Just because a few people started giving it to girls too when it became really popular doesn't make it truly unisex.
-- Anonymous User  5/27/2009
Only name your child this if you really like the way their last initial sounds with it because they surely will be called by it A LOT considering how popular and trendy this name is. This name seems rather incomplete to me and with all the many different spellings, it would be constantly misspelled. The similar names like Jayden, Kaden, Hayden could also be confusing and/or annoying at times.
-- lean  6/23/2008
I like the sound of the name Aidan, but it's dreadfully common for my taste. And yes, it is a totally masculine name. I can't quite figure out why people think it's a girls' name. Whatever.
-- aileenbean  7/3/2008
A "trendy" name. If you name your child this, expect him to share the name with at least 2 or 3 other kids in his class as well.
-- asforoneday  7/4/2008
I always thought Aidan sounded like a girl's name even though I never met a girl named Aidan. It seems like a fine name for little boys, but when I meet a grown man with the name Aidan, it feels unfitting and awkward, like a shirt 2 sizes too small. I'm surprised that so many posters are so passionately opposed to this name for girls. If you don't like it then don't name your daughter Aidan, but don't take other people doing so as a personal offense or crime against humanity.
-- likeastar  7/18/2008
I don't get the appeal of this name in any form. It sounds so juvenile.

I prefer the name Aiden over Brayden, Caden, & Jaydon. The name makes me think of the actor Aidan Quinn. I also prefer the spellings Aidan, Aiden over Aydan, etc.
-- RooRoo  9/5/2008
I love the name Aidan because it is Gaelic, I like how it sounds, and it means fiery. I don't think it sounds wimpy or anything but soft yet strong. It's a shame that it is so popular though. I liked this name before many people began naming their kids Aidan. Yeah I do see where it would be annoying when people would think your name was Hayden or Cayden or Brayden. But there are other names that have that issue (example: Jason and Dason, Ryan and Brian, Justin and Dustin).
-- Fire1815  9/7/2008
This is my middle name and I'm rather indifferent towards it. My mom chose this for me back in 1994, when almost no one was being named this. Today, every other kid is named Aidan or one of its awful variants. Even though this name isn't really my style, I just want to reiterate how important it is to spell it correctly. Aaden, Aedin, and Aydun just aren't right.
-- Anonymous User  11/30/2008
Aidan is the "sweetest" name ever for a baby boy and "cute" name for a little boy. A "cool" name for a teenage boy. And a "elegant" "strong" and "sophisticated" name for a handsome man! "Aidan" is my son's name and don't think I could've made a better choice. I love his name!
-- crystal carreno  1/5/2009
I don't know what people mean about it being extremely popular in the U.S. I've lived here my whole life and never met an Aidan. One Jayden, but that's not exactly the same. I used this name on a character in my story and I think it's a strong, beautiful masculine name. I'm not such a fan of it as a girl's name, but *shrug*. I don't think anybody should restrict their usage of a name just because they're of a different heritage or the name is popular at the time. Names are rather enduring things and don't have to fit within societal norms or 'fads'. Whatever floats your boat, man.
-- MorganBonny  2/4/2009
Overused in the U.S? I live there and I have never ever met a single Aidan. I personally like this name. Like not love. It sounds like a sweet name, it fits on both sexes because of that. I'd recommend this name. =D

This name would have been fine if not for the rhyming fad from the 1990s and 2000s. I agree with an above poster that this is a child's name, one that a person will outgrow very quickly. It would be very strange to meet an adult named Aidan -- at least in the US and Canada (minus Newfoundland). It was pretty much unused prior to 1990.

It's probably not very accurate, but with a few tweaks I believe the name Aidan can actually mean 'eternal tale' in Japanese!

Aidan is not really a fad name because it wasn't simply made up in the last 20 years and has been around for a long time. I suppose it may seem like one though if it has become so frequent all at once. Although I'm not really bothered by it, I think it's silly using Aidan on girls. It may not be as typically masculine as John or David, but it is still more suited to a boy, which is the gender the name was meant for. Just leave it be.

I love my name! Im a girl, 14, and everybody thinks it's cool that I have a guys name. I think it's cool for a girl, and it fits really well with my pesonality. After all, it's not as bad as my friends' name being Barry! My name is flipping awesome!

No, Aidan is not a unisex name. Just because some girls get called Aidan doesn't make it unisex. It is a boys name.

So how does everyone know that Aidan was strictly a masculine name historically when we really just don't know for sure? I think it's unisex until someone can prove otherwise. Time machine anyone?

It isn't a unisex name for the same reasons that David or Richard aren't unisex names. Boys were always called Aidan. Girls were not.

I am a girl and my name is Aiden, named after a nun 'sister Aiden' also named after 'Saint Aiden'. To be honest, reading all of your ridiculous comments saying how it's a boys name or that it'll give you aids is so closed-minded. Who decides if it's a girl or a boys name? Nobody. It's just somebody's opinion. Just get over it, I certainly have and it's nice to see other girls with my name are out there. I like being different, even if I have to repeat my name every time somebody asks or get told I have a boys name, it really doesn't matter.

Aidan makes me think of an elementry aged, blond hair, blue eyed kid who has ADHD
Weird, I know, but that's what the name makes me picture.

I much prefer Adrian; makes me think of a darker featured, calmer male who's handsome and the strong silent type with a keen eye and has intelligence.

Aidan is just too trendy and overused and I cant help but to think of a little trouble maker, zpoiled brat.
