Comments for CAMDEN:

I was born in a town called Camden and I just noticed it here on the website as a boy's name! Crazy.

Isn't Camden the London borough where Madness came from?

Camden is a great name, very strong and boyish. A great alternative to the over popular Cameron. Don't get me wrong, I like Cameron too.

My name is Camden DeAnne, and I am a girl. Camden is not only a boy name and I don't think of it as masculine at all really. I was born in 1990 and I don't know any boys with my name, but I have met 2 girls with the name.

The city of Camden, located in New Jersey, on the Delaware River and across from Philadelphia, bears this name.

I think Camden would be very nice as a girl's name. I would definitely name my daughter or son this; it's very different and pretty without being overly flowery. There's also a town in Maine named Camden.

This my son's name. I think of it as a boys name mostly but I also like it as a girls name, and I'm someone who usually hates boyish names on girls. He does get called Cameron a lot, mostly by older people but he has already learned to just ignore it and answer to Cameron anyway. My son is only four but he seems to like his name and so do most other people.

Camden is a London borough. Camden Town is a place in that borough, which is very shabby and run-down, and is mostly famous for its market which sells cheap drug paraphernalia and tacky goth fetish-wear. I hope that there are nicer Camdens in the US, because I sure wouldn't want to be named after the London one.

The city of Camden, New Jersey isn't that nice either.

I love this, and definitely agree it's much nicer as a girl's name. But as for being named after Camden Town, in London? I'd love that! It's a beautiful, soulful place, with amazing people and a great culture, and yes it's rundown, but that's part of its charm!

Like the place in New Jersey? That is a really, really bad association. On top of that, it has the trendy -en ending which is probably the only reason why people like it.

Like others have said, the name Camden immediately makes me think of Camden, New Jersey, which is definitely not the most delightful namesake.

Ugh. This name is getting too popular and sounds trashy. And Camden is not exactly a nice place to live! I can see naming your kid after a beautiful city, like Vienna or Florence, but who wants to go with Camden?

I think the current statistics are that Camden, New Jersey is the most violent city in America. So yeah, not a good association (if you live in the U.S.).

I really like this name for a girl! It just has a soft sound to it, very gentle. And yes, I also like the name Cameron on a girl. ;p I like the names Eden, Camden, Peyton, Cameron, and Harlow on a girl. Go ahead and criticize if you wanna but the names sound girly. Sorry for the boys who have these names. :(

It reminds me of the family from Seventh Heaven (last name is Camden). It's a good association if you like the show. I think it's cute, strong, and very masculine. A nice variation of the overplayed Cameron.

The former television personality and model Vanessa Joy Minnillo (also Vanessa Joy Lachey, but she uses her maiden name professionally) named her son this after Camden Drive in Beverly Hills. Contrary to popular belief, his name has nothing to do with NJ. They've never lived there, anyway.

Originally, Nick liked Colin better but Vanessa rejected the idea. Coincidentally, they drove by Camden Drive on the way to her OBGYN. Camden John Lachey was born on September 12, 2012.

That poor boy. Colin is a thousand times better than this 'name'. At least colin has history and class. 'Camden' is trashy, tacky, and sounds very similar to those horrible -aden names. Heck, why not name Camden's brother Trenton, another awful name taken from the name of another rundown New Jersey city? I cannot see this name aging well and it oozes celebrity-inspired unintelligence. I can only hope there aren't any idiot parents spelling it 'Kamdyn' or something like that and using it for girls.

Camden is my daughter's name, and yes, she is named after Camden Town in London. I'm the first to admit it's not the fanciest place in London, and I'm not sure I'd want to be on my own there late at night, but it is a unique area that is fun and safe during the day. We were there (with Camden, who is nine) just last month and she loved spending the day in "her town". We wanted something different but not weird that was easy to pronounce and easy to spell. Camden fits the bill perfectly. We live on the West Coast of the US and people are constantly telling me how much they love her name. She loves her name, too, though she is currently going by 'Cami' at school because there is another Camden (boy) in her class. What are the odds!
