    I think girl…when I heard it, I thought of Hayden Panettiere.

    I think it a boy name that recently became used for a girl name. Traditionally a boy name though.

    Both Hayden Panettiere and Hayden Christensen come to mind, so I’d say gender neutral!

    I think the abscence of hard phonetic sounds makes the name more feminine.

    I went to school with 3 boy Hayden’s. It’s pretty ambiguous.

    I voted girl, but the more I think about it the more neutral it seems to me. Certainly nothing for people to get worked up about.

    @ieatunicorns:  “I think it a boy name that recently became used for a girl name. Traditionally a boy name though.”

    I agree.  My first gut reaction is boy.  But I wouldn’t find it super crazy from someone to use it for a girl.
