@MrsRugbee:  Really? Trashy? You’d go that far?

@Sunshine09:  I like Aiden, but none of the other 230843457 versions. 

Trends come and go, this applies to names too. I went to school with about 3 Jennifers and 4 Brittanys per class, and countless other popular names of that time (Ashley, Tiffany, Jessica & Tyler, Justin, Ryan come to mind too).

I’ve never really had much of an opinion on names and don’t have a problem with trendy names like a lot of people seem to but I have very negative feelings towards -aden names. I just really really dislike them.

I think we are just so over those names. It seems like almost every boy in the last few years is named Aiden, Cayden, Jayden, etc. I personally don’t like them.

I like “Aiden” but I’ll be honest and say Aiden only works with a strong Irish or Scottish last name. Just my opinion. ;-p


I’m not a fan of the other names but its more that I think they are overused, and I tend to like more traditional male names. I’m boring.

I’d give my right arm to meet a new family, have them all be introduced and hear things like, Sally, Trisha, Nicholas, Harold, Jack, William or Sam….I’ve had a belly full of parents trying to make their children stand out with a name, when any person worth their salt knows that he or she will be defined by their actions and the integrity of their character…not how freakin weird their name is….

@stuckinwonderland:  I miss-spelled my child’s name but for a reason. My child has an unusual name and it was my grandmothers. Her parents spoke with such a thick accent that her name ended up being miss-spelled on the birth certificate. I chose to honor my grandmother by giving my daughter her name as hers was spelled. It was not a look how creative am I move but a I’m naming her for you so I will spell it the same despite the mistake that was made by NY records department.

I don’t personally know any families with kids named Aiden, so I still like the name (as a PP said, it reminds me of the character on SATC, whom I loved). Not a huge fan of the other iterations, but I also really haven’t heard these around much either so I don’t find them overplayed. Must be my area and the fact that I don’t know too many families w/ young kids *shrug*

Brayden was my absolutely favorite name for a little boy 10ish years ago; now, I wouldn’t name my child an -aden name if you paid me.

I like Aiden, and one of my best friends has a 3 year old named Aiden. He is the cutest little monster ever! So yeah, I have a good association with the name, and I really don’t care if it’s overused. Clearly that is because a lot of people think it is a nice name. There’s no harm in that. 🙂

I like Aidan, the more traditional (I won’t say “correct,” but, you know …) Irish spelling.

I don’t like “Aiden,” and I detest all the variants across the rest of the alphabet.

Like other people, I liked Aiden until people started replacing the “A” with every other letter of the alphabet. I know one couple with two children: Caiden and Jayden. The husband’s brother also jumped on the bandwagon and named their daughter Braeden. 

I think it’s really trendy now and I hope the craze dies out soon.
