Haaaaate these names. Painfully trendy. Can you see the next president or a judge being called Aiden/Jayden/Caden Jones?! I can’t lol.

I’m not a fan….I liked Aiden, until someone decided to create a version with every letter of the alphebet.  Well, to be fair, I still like Aiden.  I just wouldn’t name my kid that now.  But I really do dislike it’s rhyming counterparts.  Luckily, there are many other names out there!

I think they really are destined to die out. They sound kind of trashy to me :S

I’ve always liked Aidan.  But I do not like all of the rhyming versions.

I actually really like Aiden. I like it spelled with the ‘ai’ as opposed to ‘ay.’ I think names spelled with the ‘ay’ do have a little bit more of a trendy spin. I don’t really like Cayden or Jayden.

I definitely associate them with a certain socioeconomic status.  I think that’s how names are though.  Something gets latched onto, it becomes popular, then they move down the ladder and fade out.  Nothing is even particularly wrong with Aiden, it’s just those two syllable long a monstrosities that sprung from it… the infinite spellings of Kayley and Bayley and Jayda and Mayson and Grayson and Payson and Payton and who knows what else.  

I’ve never thought mispelling your child’s name was inventive though.

I like them fine. But wouldn’t use them. For awhile there ALL of my friends and relatives were naming their babies some form/spelling of Jaiden or Jaylen. The names are still pretty but trendy enough where I don’t want to give them to my child. My rule of thumb of this point is “in 20 years, will someone be able to look at my child’s name and be able to pinpoint the exact year in which he/she was born or conceived?” If so, the name hits the cutting room floor.

Two of my brother’s kids are named Kayley and Aiden.  My step-sister has two kids named Haley and Jaden.  I definitely think this is a trendy thing on the way out.  I don’t DISlike the names, I think they’re overused.

Wow. They are super trendy.

But people name their kids these names so I think it’s obvious that a lot of people like them.

Sorry, I love the name Aiden. It’s a very traditional Irish name (several mythological characters have had the name, as well as a saint) that means “little fire.” It’ll likely be our son’s name if we have a boy. I don’t care for the -aden ended names, however.

I love the name Aiden and have since before it became popular.  However, I would never name my kid that now.  Its too popular.  Bleh, who wants their kid to have same name as everyone eles

I hate the name Aiden. It makes me think AIDS-laden.
