Linden is a new name for me! I've never seen it until this day. I think it is masculine as the Italian word 'tiglio'. The -en part saves it from the similar -and very cutesy- Linda and makes Linden better than it.

Sounds gentle and mild, makes me think of a warm breeze. Like this spelling better than the ex pres, Lyndon Johnson.

He actually spelled it Lyndon, not Linden.

My name is Linden and according to most people's perception that name actually suits and says a lot about the person I am. It is true that we are loving people, kind-hearted and sometimes stubborn. Very reliable and sensual.

I really like this name. I think of Hunter's little brother Linden whom died in the Sweep series by Kate Tiernan.

It begins in lin and ands in the -in sound, wonder why it hasn't been bastardized into a trendy female name yet, maybe spelled lindyn or something like that. All I can say is thank god that hasn't happened yet, this is a nice respectable name on boys only. Very unique too.

Linden is actually a pretty cool name. I prefer it to Lyndon, personally. I'm surprised it's in Canada's top 100. No offense to them, but they don't seem to have the best names in their top 100! This is an exception however, I think it'll age quite well considering president Lyndon B Johnson.

The award-winning Canadian author and journalist Linden MacIntyre bears this name.

I loooove this name. This would have been my daughter's name if she was a boy. I'm really surprised it hasn't become trendy, with the -en ending. I like nature names and still have a little bit of regret that I was never able to use Linden. (My son is named Hollis, another lovely nature name.)

I have always loved this name. When I think of this name, I think of a considerate, sensitive little boy that everyone loves. I also think this is a great middle name for a girl.

Really like this for a girl. It's my understanding that nature names can be used for either gender. Lindy is a gorgeous nickname for a little girl.

I love this name, it's really nice and I prefer it for a boy. My favourite character in the TV show Holby City is called Linden Cullen.

I love the sound of this name. People never mistake it, though often they take it as the male version "Lyndon". This is the name we chose for one of our twin girls. It's lovely and absolutely grows on you. I have no regrets in choosing this name for her.

The only Linden I know is a man. It's also a city in the South American country of Guyana.

It baffles me as to why this name isn't popular now. It has all the components.

I love it for a boy.

I have always seen this as a male name, possibly a spelling variation of Lindon/Lyndon. It's a very gentle sort of name.
