It is also an anagram of the ancient Greek word "cademon" (KADEMON in Greek). From the ancient Greek verb "Kekadmai", meaning "winning the battle".

I also heard it pronounced cade-mon with a long "a" sound.

Don't like this name at all. Looks and sounds unattractive.

I know an Inuit girl named Caedmon and she pronounces it kied-men not the way you list it. Caedmon is also a girls name.

It should be noted that first of all, Caedmon is a saint in the Roman Catholic church. St. Caedmon is also not just an Anglo Saxon poet but THE earliest English poet whose name is known.

A soft "a" is how it is supposed to be pronounced, however everyone I have met with the name uses a hard "A". This may be because of how it is spelled or because of the band "Caedmon's Call" which pronounces it that way as well.
