I love this spelling much more than Aidan; it looks a lot prettier.

There is a band named Aiden they are rather good too!

Aiden is half of my name; I think that it is really classic and androgynous.
-- Riley115  12/29/2005
This is a trendy butchering of the male name *Aidan*. It is simply a misspelling of a masculine name and is not suitable for anyone, least of all females.

To the user that claimed Aiden was a trendy butchering of "Aidan", what butchering is going on here? ONE letter was changed from the origional. It's not like this is spelled "Aiydynne", or something- that would be a butchering. Aiden is simply a variant of Aidan, and barely so. I actually like both of these names, although their popularity is rather high at the moment.

I have heard this name is Celtic for "Fire".

I have heard Aiden used as a girl's name and I think it's pretty like that. I am not fond of the masculine usage.

I like this name very much for boys, not girls. I wish it wasn't so popular, though. I also prefer this spelling over all the others.

Aiden is actually a legitimate name in its own right. It's a Hebrew name and a variant of Eden and is pronounced much the same way as Eden.

Aiden is the leading human male character in Annette Curtis Klause's "Blood and Chocolate" who happens to have some hippie-like qualities.

I love this name. It sounds sexy in a way. It's a name of a good band too. I would love to name my kid this, preferably a boy.

Aiden is an American post-hardcore band from Seattle, Washington.

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.

What if you actuly ARE Irish? Hmmm? Then can you name your kid this?

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".

Aiden is one of the cute little Asian boys on Jon and Kate Plus 8. But his name is spelled Aaden.

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!

When a teacher at my school named her son this in 2000 or 2001, I thought it was cool. Now I think it is fadish.
-- Anonymous User  4/22/2008
I hate this name. It sounds so tacky and babyish. Also, every other boy seems to be named Aiden, Jaden, Caden, or Brayden. Now they're even being given to girls (barf). Why do people like these names?
-- bananarama  7/15/2008
I think because of the band "Aiden" it is becoming wildly popular with the younger emo and rocker people. When I see this name, I think of either a hard-core rocker dude or a cute little blonde toddler. Hmmmm. I do love this name though.
-- UnicornMacMac  8/20/2008
Aiden and his pals Jaiden, Kaiden, Braiden and Rayden rival Nevaeh for most repulsive trends of the 2000's. Ugh. I swear, you can't chuck a stone in a kid's playpark without hitting an Aidan any more.
Parents, find something else to beat to death already, please? All these names sound incredibly babyish, and I'm sick of hearing them.

Aiden Falconer is one of the main characters in the series On The Run writte by Gordon Korman.

This was my great-great-uncle's name, so I might use it as a middle name, but I do not like it enough to use as a first name. The name sounds too strange and old to me.
-- Anonymous User  1/21/2009
Means Fire.

I don't dislike the name Aidan, but spelling it Aiden just makes it look ugly. It also makes me want to pronounce it Ay-DEN instead of AID-an. Vowels actually mean something; they're not just stuck in names willy-nilly because they look nice.
-- Anyechka  8/24/2009
My brother is named Aiden. When my parents named him this the name wasn't very popular but now it is one of the most popular name in the USA. I think it is a very unique name which has a nice sound to it.
-- Milena Scialfa  10/18/2009
I used to like the name, but now I'm kinda sick of hearing it. I HATE the Aiden spelling. The original spelling is Aedan or Aodhan. I'm not saying that Americans should spell it that way, but Aidan is the original English spelling. Aiden just looks butchered.
-- McHobbit  10/25/2009
Tacky and faddish. You couldn't swing a cat in a trailer park without hitting five of them.
-- vomiting  11/5/2009
I feel like it's an immature mallgoth name that young parents would bestow upon their child, only to dress him in the Misfits onesies on the Hot Topic rack. There was some gothy pop punk band with this name, so that association will always be there for me.
-- Aureliano  2/24/2010
Least favorite boy's name. Sounds preppy and pretentious- like people are trying to groom their kid into Hollywood. Just my opinion.
-- JW41926  4/12/2010
I don't like this name very much, it's way too trendy to be my style. I also can't imagine it on anybody older than seven. :/
-- Bunko0  10/1/2010
I hate to say this (of the negative comments I might receive) but I can see the appeal of Aiden being upper-class. I rated it so.
-- Anonymous User  10/10/2010
I hate this respelling. You can't get away with respelling a traditional Irish name. It doesn't work that way.
-- Chrila96  10/29/2010
Why is everyone hating on Aiden? In my opinion, I think it is a nice name. I don't hear it around that often, but this name did catch my attention from the band. I still love this name very much and would like to name my future son this.
-- VMarie  12/19/2010
Ugh. Every freakin' kid these days is named Aiden or something that rhymes with it- Jayden, Brayden, Hayden, Zaiden, Gayprideparaden... ENOUGH ALREADY!
-- Anonymous User  5/6/2011
This name is very cute, but way too common right now in the USA. Everyone who is having a kid is naming it Aiden.
-- Anonymous User  12/30/2011
I find it heartily humorous that parents always seem to claim and preach how they did not realize that "Aiden" was so disgustingly overused; how they chose it because they were fond of it; because they that it it was individual.
Perhaps thy did, at the time... but it is hideously difficult for me to believe that they are (or were) so blind. These days, I cannot leave the house without hearing at least one parent summoning their child by this name.

That said... it is a terribly juvenile, overrated name. I often say that names are more attractive when written... but "Aiden" is revolting to both the eye and ear. I truly am unable to look (or listen) to it without tightening my face-- it's quite unfortunate (though not the fault of the bearer.)

I just wish that parents dug deeper for all of the possible gems.
-- Francesca  1/19/2012
This respelling is definitely an infantile and common one. I don't mind Aidan or even Aedan, but Aiden looks horribly butchered and childish.
-- Black_X  7/17/2012
The name Aiden was given to 86 poor little girls born in the US in 2012. I'm sorry, but this name and all its variants are godawful on either gender.
-- Oohvintage  7/18/2013
Personally I can only picture this on a child. And I've never even met a child with the name Aiden. It just doesn't sound like a name that would fit an adult.
But at least it's a simple short name.
-- Gio123  10/16/2013
I really enjoy this name, one of my favorites. Though I pronounce it AI-den, not AY-den. Love it!
-- UltimateTheZekrom  8/29/2014
What nickname would you give your son; Aids?

That's nice... lol!

Just go with Adrian. Its SO much better. Also Aiden\Aidan the start of the horrific, caiden, braiden, jayden, zaden trend (all spellings).
-- Anonymous User  11/22/2014
This is the only "-aden" name I like. I think it has a nice sound and meaning.
