    I honestly do not like it, and I definitely don’t like it for a girl (or a boy for that matter). it’s overly stylish, like “hollister” model stylish, just imo.

    It’s the name of an economically depressed city in New Jersey.

    I can’t see it gaining much popularity, at least not in the northeast considering it’s the name of the poorest and most dangerous city in NJ.

    I don’t like trendy, “made up” names.

    It reminds me of the town in New Jersey. To be, it would be like naming a child Brooklyn or Dallas. I prefer the name “Cameron” for a girl (like Cameron Diaz).

    I’ve only known one person ( female) with this name. I would imagine with a boy people will shorten it to Cam.  It does remind me of a city name since there is a Camden not too far from me.

    I’ll go against the grain and say I like it! The name actually has pretty solid roots as a surname in British and Gaelic cultures. Definitely nothing fake or made-up about it. Also, I love Nick Lachey (he’s a hometown guy; I’m also from Cincinnati) but I don’t think the birth of his son was quite high-profile enough to cause a spike in the popularity of the name.

    I’m with other posters, it reminds me of Camden, NJ…that’s actually where my Fiance was born and his dad used to live in a city near there and I’ve heard some crazy/terrible stories. One time his dad’s truck was stolen and it was found in Camden sitting on milk crates (with no tires obviously).

    Out of the 2 choices you’ve posted so far, Beckett wins.

    Makes me think of Camden Yards. But I think it’s a cuter name for a boy than a girl.

    @msbriezyb:  I LOVE that you just said totes cute, lol.

    I actually think Camden is a strong name for a boy. When I first heard it after the celebs named their babies it, I wasn’t sure, but it’s really grown on me. OP, as someone from the midwest/south you might not associate it with the city in NJ, I sure don’t and had never heard of it before, so with where you live I don’t think that association will be a problem. If you love it go for it, it’s a good name for a boy that isn’t heard too much.

    It doesn’t even sound like a name to me. What about Clayton, Courtland, or Cameron?
