I thought that this was a variant or mis-spelling of Hayden, but it's actually its own name, meaning 'heathen'. Cool.

I wish it didn't mean "heathen", as a Catholic I could never use it even though it sounds great.

This is pronounced HY-din.

This is not pronounced like Hayden, this is a name in itself. It is a surname of my favorite composer, and it is pronounced HIGH-den.

Oh, I'm glad I'm not the only one who says HY-den. I love Haydn, but I would only ever use it as a middle as it would be mispronounced as HAY-den all the time.

I know one person with his name, and she's a girl and pronounces it just like Hayden. I prefer Hayden over Haydn, anyway.

This is even worse than Hayden. I don't know what I'd do if the tryndies started naming their kids Jaydn, Braydn, Caydn...

Yuck. The -dn just looks so strange.

This name is cool. I like it waaaaayyy better than Hayden. I think it's because of the unusual ending...

Music is probably the biggest part of my life, and I would love to honor one of the most famous composers by using this name. It is pronounced HIE-din. I think it could work, especially with the trendiness of Hayden and names similar.
