I kinda like it, I mean I don't hate it, but I probably wouldn't choose it, it's cool for a boy, and OK for a girl, it makes me think of the garden of Eden, overall it's a fine name, I give it a 4/10.
This is my baby that will be born in 2030's name, and y'all are hateful. I am white and I'm Abby. I don't think you have to be white to use this name, just like how you don't have to be black to have the name Kia. When I have Eden it would not matter what year she's born in or not (sorry, I don't mean any offense). However, Eden is white and it also does not matter what color Eden or me is. And I'm 10.
This name seems feminine to me. I wouldn't consider it. I just don't see this word as someone's name.
I've always thought this is a masculine name because of the Belgian soccer player Eden Hazard. I can't imagine this name being used on a girl.
My name's Eden grace (EEE-den) :p I hated this name for a fair amount of time due to the fact I'd get picked on quite a lot during middle school & was told it was a "boyish" name, (however I've always thought of it to be more of a unisex name, yet more on the feminine side, although it depends on how u choose to pronounce it.) some of my peers believed my name sounded like the word "eating", (which is true to an extent) so a few people around school had decided it'd be funny to nickname me "edenballs" or "edenass" & no I'm not exaggerating whatsoever. Although I do find the joke pretty funny now!I'm growing to love the name more & more overtime & these comments have really helped with that, yet I don't really believe the definition of the name suits my personality that much : place of pleasure (take that as u will) & delight. Oh & I almost forgot to mention, it's way better than being the 2nd or 3rd Lauren, Amy or Emma, that's for sure!
This is my name! I love it so much - it's so pretty!
My name is Eden! I don’t think that people should be saying rude stuff about it. It is a very clever name, anyone that has it shouldn’t be offended to have it. I definitely felt very sad when I read these comments, so stop.
Absolutely lovely on a girl and great for a guy, too! I might keep this name in mind for the future!
I think this name is really pretty.
This is such a pretty name! I will 100% use this for a girl!
LOVE it! It would work for a boy or girl.
This name is actually starting to grow on me. The meaning is absolutely delightful as well.
Pretty! Would love on a boy.
I'm called Eden and I'm an 18-year-old girl from England. I absolutely love it as it's different and quirky for someone my age, I know only a couple of others my sort of age with it. All of them are girls, though I do often meet people and they expect me to be a boy. I'm a bit sad that it's becoming more popular as I love being an individual, though I totally understand why people are using it- it is a great name!
Sweet name on either a girl or a boy.
Very charming and gentle, but it seems as if it's getting popular.
I am absolutely in love with this name. It makes me think of peace, paradise, the garden, the list goes on. I think it is absolutely beautiful and it is one of my favorite names. Especially paired with a good middle name, like Eden Eternity.
Eden is a character in the video The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, unique for the randomness that comes when playing with the character. Eden "isn't a man, nor are they a woman", as stated by the creator of the game, Edmund McMillen, "they just are".
I named my daughter Eden-Grace and she is as sweet and gentle as the name suggests. I chose this name for her 20 years before she was born and never changed my mind.
I have the name Eden, and it’s been useful for me as a genderqueer person. People don’t really assume it’s a masculine or feminine name where I live, so it’s been nice to have a name that doesn’t get gendered too often.
Eden Rebecca Sher (born December 26, 1991) is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Sue Heck on the ABC sitcom The Middle.Additionally, Sher is also known for her role as the voice of Star Butterfly on the Disney Channel series Star vs. The Forces of Evil.
I dunno about this name :/
Eden is such a beautiful, delicate, and extremely feminine name, that I personally think it should only be given to girls. The name reminds me of the paradise mentioned in the Bible. The garden of Eden was full of floral splendor. So please don't give that name to a boy. Boys need much more masculine names.
I like this name. I can't really see it on a boy, though. Eden seems exclusively feminine to me. I personally like the meaning (reminds me of Abilene, another favorite of mine) and the story behind it, even though I'm not religious myself.
I can kind of picture this name on boys and girls.
Due to the -den ending trend, this name will never be feminine in my eyes.
I live in Israel and here Eden is almost exclusively masculine. The Hebrew pronunciation is "E-DEN" (the "e" pronounced like in elephant or egg).
I’ve never really liked this name, it seems sort of snobbish. It’s prettier spelled ”Edin”.
In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Eden who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 1, 557th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens. In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Eden who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 4, 996th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.
The name is quite popular in Australia. I personally know three Eden's, they're all children.
This name is so pretty! I remember when I did a lab for my child development class and I met a girl name Eden, her name really did fit her because she was so sweet and kind.
I like this name, it's really pretty. There was a girl I knew with this name and it really suited her.
Thanks to Eden Hazard, this name has grown on me a lot, and I'm liking it for a boy when pronounced eh-DEN, while the English pronunciation suits girls more, at least in my opinion. Anyway, it's a lovely name and I would use it on my child.
I personally think this is a lovely name for a girl! Wouldn't really suit a boy though. Being Christian, I just think it is nice to name a girl after the garden of Eden. I'm not sure what it actually means, but of course, it would still be fine if non-Christians called their daughter this name. It's just nice in general.
These comments are so funny. There are several names that can be boy and girl names. This is a beautiful name! I also wouldn't ever understand how someone sees this as a tacky name. It is Hebrew and biblical. Also dirty minds can turn anything sexual, who cares. My name is Lane and I am a female. It's a name used by both men and women but has a masculine origin. I've loved my name my whole life and I am fine when I run into a male Lane. Not many people have that name just as I haven't met many Eden's so it's neat to meet people with my name. Eden is a name just like Lane and it's beautiful, unique and way better than being the 4th Lauren, Ashley, Emily, Sarah, Katie, or Stephanie in your class. My middle name is also both masculine and feminine as well, Kelly. Who cares? Isn't it really the person who makes the name? I love the name Eden because it's from the bible, and I learned of it as a young girl when I knew someone who named their daughter that. I thought it was beautiful then, and beautiful now.
This is a BOY'S name!
I love this name! It is so beautiful and means paradise in hebrew! I think it is a beautiful name for a girl! I am seriously thinking of naming my child this if it is a girl! I have several friends named Eden and I think it might just be the best name I have ever heard! Perfect for a little jewish girl!

I heard this game on the iPad called Eden and it's a cool name.
Despite the majority preferring this name for a girl, or from what it seems, I much prefer it for a boy. I wouldn't mind naming a son Eden as a first or middle name. Never for a daughter. I really don't like Eden for a girl.
This was my daughters name. She truly does make anyone happy with her presence.
Beautiful, simple name.
I think Eden is a very beautiful name. It definitely sounds more feminine to me though.
The name has an Arabic and Islamic reference. Quran involved the word Eden many times as a paradise and it is pronounced in Arabic as Adn-enn.
Eden Hazard is a Belgian footballer who plays for Chelsea and the Belgium national team.
My little sister's name is Eden Rose Evangeline. The name Eden fits her so well! It's pretty sounding but it still has kind of a strong personality to it.
My name is Eden Elizabeth. I'm almost 50. I only knew of one other Eden when I was growing up. I guess since it's my name, I think of it as a feminine name - not masculine. Maybe they pronounce it differently. Ed-en for boys and Eee-den for girls. I don't know. There weren't very many "unique" names at my schools. Lots of Kristen's, Amy's, Carrie's. I could never find my name on anything like notebooks, pencils, jewelry, etc. That bugged me when I was young because that was a popular thing - to have pencils and things with your name on them. So I didn't like my name very much when I was growing up. But now I really like it. Most people tell me that I have a beautiful name when I first meet someone. So that's always nice to hear. =)
I just named my daughter (born 2/22/16) Ariel Eden. I recently heard the name online and fell in love with it. I went through so many other names but this one just stuck and I kept going back to it. I was originally going to go with Ariel Evalene or Ariel Winter but decided at the last minute to go with Eden instead as a middle name. No regrets, however, my older daughter dislikes the name Eden. I think it's classy, classic, unique, exotic and beautiful.
My name is Eden. My father named me after Groucho Marx's wife. He told me it was the most beautiful name he had ever heard. I am very proud of my name and enjoy telling people about it. I have only met one other Eden in all my years. I went to school with her father and she told me that he named her because he liked my name so much. I believe they thought it was from the bible and her grandfather was a preacher. So now she also has my story to add to her own.
The name Eden (עֵדֶן) also has the same root as the Hebrew word for "gentle" (עָדִין). In Hebrew it is pronounced EHden, Eh as in Esther, and it can be both a boy's or a girl's name.
My name is Eden. I have seen several people (male/ female) with the very same name. It's 2016, so name a kid hamburger if you like, but my personal opinion when naming a child is that there are a few main factors:
Sound - the way the name is pronounced
Meaning - what does this name represent? Who do I want my child to be?
Relevance/ relation - does it fit together with these other criteria, and can I find other names to pair it with that will complement each other as well as the child?
Uniqueness - do all of my friends have a child with the same name or a similar one?With that being said, the definition of the name Eden brings to mind more feminine attributes. Things you think you would want in a wife or a daughter. Most of the time when men are named people look for something a bit more powerful, striking, or intellectual. Not that you aren't any of those things if your name is Eden, but that is the impression I have gotten since I've been born with the name.
I much prefer this on a boy so if I ever did use this name; child, character or pet, it would all be on some male. I don't really like it for a girl even with the Garden of Eden associations and or connections.
I love this name probably because I love earthy and place names. I saw it written in an old school text book and instantly fell in love with it. If we ever have a daughter we will definitely consider this for her first name. I love it too much to give it as a middle name.
In Barbie in a Christmas Carol, Eden Starling is the female version of Ebenezer Scrooge. Here she's an opera singer.
I named my daughter Eden, because the moment I saw her, I saw beauty, I felt peace and home is where the heart is and she became my beating heart that moment.
The Garden of Eden means light, paradise, beauty, peace and homely and to me my daughter reflects that. As for the girl (the poster before the one above mine) that doesn't like her name, my dear I'm telling you that you have a beautiful and unique name, and don't make the comments that those children inflicted on you define who you are. You should have more confidence in yourself... I'm sure your mom felt the same way I did, hence the reason for naming you Eden.
I'm telling you now, that Eden is beautiful, and where I live, everyone I told my daughter's name to, they marveled at it, and they all found it unique. 8 girls told me they wish they had that name, and 19 mothers said to me "Gee! Why didn't I think of that for my daughter?"
So sweetheart, you are a treasure beyond measure and you don't even know it.
MY NAME IS EDEN and I need to say something. DO NOT NAME YOUR GIRL CHILD THIS EVER. Believe me it in NOT feminine and does not sound nice, especially when everyone pronounces it ee-den. When I was little I got picked on for it, still do in fact and I'm 20! I hate it as a name, hated feeling like I had a boys name as a child, and do not like the sound of it. PLEASE I beg you do not name your female children this, it's torture! As an adult I spend a lot of time trying to get people to pronounce it ed-en or id-en, but people are too stubborn. And to make it worse all my middle names are boys names as well, so I can't switch to one of them, and nicknames never take off!When I hear the name Eden it's worse than nails down a black board!
I think this name is beautiful and enchanting. The poster before me seems a tad melodramatic.
If I ever get a boy, I would gladly name him Eden. It sounds so calming and nice :)
In the English pronunciation, eeee-den, or eed-n, it fits better for girls. However, in other country's pronunciation, like Hebraic, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, the pronunciation is EH-den, which sounds way more masculine, but could also be used for girls. It's a pretty name, regardless, even though I prefer the ED-den pronunciation.
I prefer Eden for a boy.
My name is Eden Skye and I am a female. I adore my name! I've done extensive research into its meaning (just Eden, not Skye), and the words that turned up most were pleasure, paradise, delight and jewel. All very vivid and lovely meanings. Yay for parents who pick cool names!
I am a teenage girl named Eden, and I love my name. I am the only one in my school named Eden and it makes me feel like a famous person because everyone simply knows me as "Eden" and doesn't need to know my last name to distinguish me from others. I am not religious, and I believe Eden is a girl's name. The way I pronounce it is "EEEE- DEN", I often have people pronouncing it "EDDD-IN" which is quite annoying! Overall I love my name and I love that it is unique and it means paradise.
This is my name, and people are always calling me "Edn" (dropping the second e) or Edin with an "i" sound, so in case you guys are wondering, the second part of this name is typically pronounced "den" as in a fox den. Thanks.
In Spanish this is normally a boy's name and it's pronounced EH-DENN. It doesn't sound girly to me at all. This name, along with others (for instance Alexis, Ariel & Rene) that are used in the United States for a girl but in Spanish speaking countries these are names for males. I personally prefer Eden as a middle name with a longer first name such as Roberto Eden, Fernando Eden, Ricardo Eden, etc... it's a nice name. I like the Biblical connection but I would never use for any of my kids.
Boys name. I went to school with a guy named Eden Cortez and he was really handsome. We all called him Eh-Dehn, not EE-DUN.Eden to me is a boy's name. It's similar to the name Adam, but in Spanish the name Adam is Adan (AW-DAWN). Same with Eden, it's nearly the same but with an 'E', not an 'A'. Adan/Eden. It's entirely masculine throughout Mexico, South America and the caribbean (Puerto Rico/Cuba/Dominican Republic).
When selecting a name for my daughter, I was looking for a name relating to the Bible. When the nurse first introduced me to my child, I remember thinking how beautiful I thought she was. I remembered that the Garden of Eden was suppose to be a beautiful place. When I searched the meaning of Eden, I saw the word Paradise. I knew then that Eden would be my daughter's name. I was looking for a simply unique name from the Bible. I knew Eden was a place, but I liked that aspect also. The name Eden wasn't typical, but it was fairly familiar to all who heard it spoken aloud. I didn't personally know any other person with this name, so for me, she would't be an Ashley R. / Ashley M. Child at school. Eden (E-den) is a perfect name for my DAUGHTER. She LOVES the fact that I put so much thought into her name. She loves her name. She's the only Eden at her school. She's the only Eden she knows. She could care less that a man may have carried it first. Eden = a PARADISE on earth; State of innocence; Delight and pleasure! I did good!
It's also a Hebrew and Biblical name and popular in Israel (#43 for girls, #237 for boys), pronounced as ed-in in Hebrew and other languages.This is the most similar pronunciation to what I'm thinking of (See Croatian male). [noted -ed]
I quite like the name Eden, especially on a boy. Eden is most definitely a unisex name, just more commonly used for girls.
On the American SSA list, Eden is currently #833 for boys. It shares sounds with other popular favourites such as Ethan, Dean, Evan. I adore the name Eden prn Eh-den on a boy, and think something like Eden Nathaniel would be dashing. However, a boy named Eden would definitely be mistaken for a girl on paper, and may face some teasing in elementary schools.
Eden is a beautiful name. It is also a garden, the garden of Eden. The garden of Eden is unique so the name is too!
I really love this name, and I'm definitely considering it for the future! I think the image of the garden is really pretty, so I definitely like it on a girl much better. I think it's far more feminine than it is masculine. I know that there is a male Eden in scripture, but I feel like most people wouldn't know this, as he wasn't a prominent character, and the garden is something that comes to mind before that. Also, Eden means 'delight,' and so I think the meaning could go for both genders. I think it's more feminine.
Eden is a great name! I love the name Eden! It's common, but I love it. Personal Fave! The Garden of Eden was not a legend, it was real. Also, I can't imagine a boy named Eden.
Pronounced: EE-den
Or EE-dn.
I think this is a beautiful name. I find it funny that people get so worked up about a name. If you don't like the name, fine, but why make disrespectful comments when you don't know the person.
Get a life and try to be more passionate about more constructive issues.
Eden Rebecca Sher (born 1991 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress.
Eden Sonja Jane Riegel (born 1981 in Washington, D.C.) is an American actress.
I love this name for a boy. Not so much for a girl.
With all due respect, everyone who has posted that Eden is mostly a "feminine" name and that they like it better for a girl than a boy is TERRIBLY AND ABSOLUTELY WRONG. Whoever has named a girl Eden or themselves being female are named EDEN MUST realize that they are using the name contrary to the proper gender which it is intended for in Hebrew. I am appalled to see so many comments that associate this name more with a girl. Those people are oblivious and in total ignorance. Had they done your due diligence you would know that: #1- EDEN is a Hebrew name taken from the scriptures. #2 Look therefore how it is used in the Hebrew scriptures: 1. A region in which a gardenlike park was planted as the original home of the first human pair.
2. One of the LEVITES (Note it's referring to a M-A-L-E) who responded to King Hezekiah’s call for reform; 2Chronicles 29:12; 31:14, 15.
2. A place listed along with Haran and Canneh as a main trading center with Tyre.(Eze 27:23, 24)
Regardless of whether or not you believe in the Bible, referring to where the name originates and HOW it is used should help dispel the ignorant idea that it is mainly a GIRLS name.
The name Eden occurs three times in the Bible. The first and most famous Eden is the location of the paradisiac garden in which Adam and Eve lived their pre-fall existence (Genesis 2:8). The garden of Eden is marked by four rivers: Pishon, Gihon, Haddakel and Parat (Genesis 2:13-14).
The second Eden is either a person or a region probably somewhere in Mesopotamia. Isaiah speaks of 'sons of Eden who were in Telassar' (37:12). Sometimes the word "son" is used for inhabitants (sons of Jerusalem = inhabitants of Jerusalem) but since Telassar is already a location, Eden is probably their human ancestor. The third Eden is a Levite in the days of king Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:12).
Eden is a beautiful name! 'Place of pleasure' isn't a sexual comment and if you see it that way, well, that is in the eye of the beholder! Eden conjures up an image of flowers and lush life, of innocence and calm but also strength and fierceness... It is sweet but strong too. If anyone sees this name sexually then they might want to go back to the drawing boards as 'pleasure' means more than sexual gratification and maybe it is time they found a dictionary and/or thesaurus! Love this name, so classy :)
Oh no! It's pretty but look at the meaning. Would you really want your daughter to be a place of pleasure? I guess if you're a stripper, it will work.
Regardless of its origins as a male name, this name is popular in Israel and the USA as a girl's name. I won't care what people who associate "pleasure" with strip clubs think! Deep as a puddle! My husband and I (Israeli and American, respectively) named our daughter this. We pronounce it the American way (EE-den, although many people in our region say EED-n which I don't like but I get over it). We liked Eden because it's familiar but not too common. And when we finally had a daughter after having several sons, we were delighted and it felt heavenly. This is another, deeper reason why we loved a name that meant paradise or delight.Some people associate "Eden" with all of the new Aiden, Jayden, Brayden names which is why they automatically think "boy", even not knowing the origins of it. Arabs we know seem to not like the name on a girl since Aden (Eden) is a city in Yemen, and it's a masculine name in Arabic. Technically it is in Hebrew too, but it's popular usage is now mostly feminine, much like the name Ashley morphed from masculine to feminine.
My name is Eden! Not sure why, but I've never really loved it... it's starting to grow on me a bit, which is good.
The Hebrew term may derive from the Sumerian "EDIN", which means "steppe, plain, desert, wilderness". The Sumerians used the term to refer to lands west of the Euphrates.Another theory is that it comes from a Semitic root word meaning "abundant, lush".
There is a town in Australia called Eden, located on the south coast of New South Wales.
I always think of a snobby, spoiled brat when I think of this name. It's really tacky.
This was a male family name on my mother's side for many generations, going back to the late 1700s. Not sure where it came from, but many men in the family bore it, either as a first name or as a middle name. Not entirely sure how they pronounced it but we assume it was ee-den, though the known nickname of one barer was Ed.
This name is simple and sweet-sounding. However, its Biblical implications might not go well with some people.
This name is beautiful for a girl! The meaning is beautiful and makes me think of a pleasant person with the name. In no way does it make me think of a strip club. Get your mind out of the gutter, please!
I like the biblical association, and the sound of the name is pretty, but honestly, the meaning of the name, "place of pleasure" makes me think of a strip club, and a cheap one at that.
A famous bearer is American stage actress Eden Espinosa (born February 2, 1978). She has performed in a number of stage productions, most notably the role of Elphaba in numerous productions of the musical "Wicked" on Broadway, in the first national touring production, in Los Angeles, and on the television series "Ugly Betty", in addition to understudying the role of Nessarose in the Broadway production. Her other notable roles have included the title character in the musical "Brooklyn" and Maureen in the closing Broadway cast of "RENT".
Eden Maru is a character in Extras, by Scott Westerfield.
Sounds nice, but otherwise tacky.
I hate this name. It's too popular. It's supposed to be a PLACE, not a name.
This name became quite popular in the 80's due a character on Santa Barbara named Eden Channing.I have also known a boy named Eden, but then again, the girls in his family were Logan and Jordan, so I guess their family didn't care about gender for their names.
The Hebrew way to pronounce this name is "ED-en" not "EE-den".
This name has grown on me a fair bit lately. I love it. :)
On the hit T.V show Heroes, there is a woman named Eden McCain. Her power is the power of suggestion.
This is the name of one of my cousins and I don't think it's tacky at all. Her parents named her this because they liked it and they wanted a Biblical name that (I think) wasn't as common as say Sarah or Rachel. And she pronounces it "ee-den." I also think that it's a lovely name and should be used for a girl rather than a boy.
This is a really pretty name. I find it only suitable for girls. It just sounds so weird on a boy.
I really dislike this name, it just seems soooooo tacky. I put this into the same catagory as the names Heaven and Heaven spelled backwards. It is just very trynderiffic. I dislike the meaning too - place of pleasure? Uh, kind of gross! Edie is adorable, just use the lovely Edith!
I love this name for a girl, it seems really mysterious and exotic to me for some reason. I'm using it as the name of one of my characters in the novel I'm writing.
I think Eden is a girls name, I can't imagine it as a boys. This is my name and it is not tacky even though it is uncommon it is getting popular as the years go on. I have had lots of comments about my name most people like it because it is original.
I think this is a nice name, but I wouldn't name my daughter this though. I've also seen it spelt Edyn.
It's quite tacky, and it still reminds me of a former host on MTV Europe from back in the 90s. She was arrogant and annoying towards the latter years of her career on the channel.
It's a beautiful word, no doubt. But as a name, I think it's a bit tacky.
I vote "girl" as well. If the name is so closely associated with paradise, I think it fits a girl/woman better than a boy/man. It would be like naming your son Heaven or Garden -- not too masculine by my sense of it. Hey, and anyway, the guys have lots of "ed" names to choose from and the girls are left with names like "Edwina", which is archaic and not very feminine, or "Edina", which is pretty but has been destroyed by the horrendous Ab Fab character by that name.
This is such a beautiful name, so it's one of my favorite names if I have a daughter some day. Though I think I may not use it as a firstname, probably as the middle name.
The name Eden is really pretty but I see this as a girls name, I've never even heard of a boy being called Eden. But I would pronounce it "ee-den" rather than "ed-in" just because that doesn't sound right to me.
Definitely a girl's name! I think it sounds feminine. For some reason, this is my #1 favorite name! (for now) Eden (Ee-dehn), it's simply Beautiful! I also enjoy it because I don't hear the name, I know no-one by this name. Not like many overused names out there today. Biblical times: Adam & Eve ate out of the garden of Eden. It's classy sounding and sounds like a very pretty name for a pretty girl! I think "E" names are pretty anyhow, Elegant!
I've heard this name for a boy too.
I love this name. It's my future daughter's name. It's so unique. I love it! =]
'Desperate Housewives' actress Marcia Cross recently gave birth to twin girls, one of them is called Eden, the other Savannah.
I think Eden is a beautiful name for a girl. I've never heard of a boy being called Eden until now. Personally, I think it's more feminine.
There is a character named Eden in the television series Heroes.
This is my name (I'm a female), and I've never met another Eden in my life! I have, however, heard of other Edens, all of which are females.
The name "Eden" is definitely of masculine, as well as feminine usage, and it's not a very new trend - I personally know two 25 year-old guys named Eden.
I have a friend who pronounces her name ed-in (like Ed in Edward).
Myself I see this name as feminine, maybe because I know of a baby girl named Eden. This is a beautiful name.
I knew a girl named Terra Eden which was an interesting combination that I liked. I wouldn't use it as a first name though. It seems so seductive.
Personally I adore this name because of the sound (ee-den for me), but I usually picture it on a little boy. Then again I've never really met many females, seniors or older people with the name.
Eden is also a type of rose. It's patel blend pink, cream, it was introduced in 1962.
It also means "gentle", from the Hebrew word "adin" which is spelled the same way in Hebrew (ayn, dalet, nun).
I like the spelling with an i: Edin.
I love the name Eden and think it is a much better name for a girl.
I have heard that "Eden" means "delight" in Hebrew. I don't know if this information is valid though. It is my daughter's name and she is truly a delight.
My daughter is named Eden but we always receive the comment "for a GIRL?!" when we tell people her name. It makes sense to me that it is feminine, but I know of MANY little boys with this name. It sould be listed also as a possible masculine name because of it growing popularity among boys. (But to me it just sounds girlish, especially if you associate it with the garden of Eden). Sorry boys.
The Garden of Eden is located in what used to be Babylon, now Iraq.
The garden of Eden is a legend, it isn't actually located anywhere.
This name is pronounced ed-en in Hebrew in Hebrew.
