User comments for Jaden (Meaning / History Only)

My son's name is Jaden. It is biblical, and means 'God has heard'. (At times I have seen it documented as 'Jehovah has heard')

Jaden is *not* Biblical; it is simply Jade with an N slapped on the end of it. This is one of those uber-trendy names that is enjoying its 15 minutes of kiddie fame before it goes the way of Tiffany and Heather. It can also be spelt with a randomly inserted Y.

The name Jadon is in the Bible (Nehemiah 3:7). Jaden is not. However the definition of Jaden on this website says that it could be a form or Jadon. I personally believe that it is a form of Jade.

I believe that Jaden means "precious stone" and is a variant of the name Jade.

Sure it does. It's Jade with an 'n'. That's it.

The meaning of Jaden is GOD has heard.

In response to jadesmom

It's completely legitimate to state that the origin of this name is the Hebrew bible. Hebrew is written without vowels, and the consonants don't always equate 1:1 to English consonants, so it's completely reasonable that ידון from the Hebrew scriptures could be rendered in English as Jadon, Yadon, Yadaan, Jaden, or many other variations.

In case you are dumb, the meaning of the name is God has heard. So it has an important meaning. I do not blame you anyway, since you do not know God. For those of us that have a child named Jaden, Jayden or Jadon, they are for signs and wonders. They will not fail, they will not falter, neither would their eyes see corruption and they will, in Jesus' Mighty name, not become a RAPIST or A GANGSTAR, like someone said here. How can you say somebody else's child will become such, just because of his name? I guess you don't have one. If you have one, you will know how precious they are.

It is a biblical idea, though not a name you will find in the Bible. The "Ja" is a shortened version of "Jehovah" or the personal name of GOD, commonly said "Yahweh." The next part of the name, "den" is based off of the Hebrew word for grateful or thankful, "yadeh." It can carry a range of meanings, including "God is my judge" (though this is associated with the spelling "Jadon," a wall builder in Nehemiah) and "God has heard." When we searched for a name for our son, we looked for a name that meant "Grateful to God." Jaden was it! When we picked Jaden, it was not even in the top 500 names. The year he was born, it had been discovered by many people and it shot up into the top 10. My son even had another Jaden in his class the last two years, so it will be around for a while!

It is not just Jade with an "n" at the end.

I've been using Jaden since before it was even considered a name in the US and its root is from Jadon, which is Hebrew and means "God has heard".

I've gone by Jaden since 93' long before any of the 'famous' people started naming their children Jaden... I believe the first was the dude from Buffy the Vampire Slayer that played Angel.
