@gpsp2B:  +1. While not a fan of these names, I personally have heard waaaay worse of name choices here on the bee, but while they aren’t my cup of tea, I would never call them “trashy”.

@Sunshine09:  A-I-D-A-N is a real name and I love it. The rest just annoy me.

@Sunshine09:  Sorry, forgot to put pronunciation up. Yep, you’re right! It’s a lovely name but they def should have spelt it phonetically!! My name is the same- nobody can ever pronounce itoutside of Ireland. It’s actually a fairly popular name in other countries but spelt differently!

I have always liked the name Aiden, or Aidan, however you spell it, but I have noticed the popularity rising since I first thought about using the name for a future child about 10 years ago. My initial thought was to name my son Aiden James, since James is a family name from my father’s side, and if we wanted, he could always go by A.J. instead. However, recently, my FI’s good friend had a boy and named him Aiden James. Not that it’s uncommon, but what are the chances?

Again, we’re speaking about hypotheticals here since I do not yet have children, but early in our relationship, Fiance mentioned that he has thought about using his mother’s maiden name, which is Zaidain (pronounced like Aiden but with a Z), and it is Lebanese. I loved the idea since it’s similar to Aiden and it has much more meaning to my FI/us. However, now I feel like people would judge us for the spelling/variation on Aiden, even though the name has much more backstory than just the fact that we randomly like the name. However, at this point I guess I don’t care what other people think, since it means something to us and it shouldn’t matter why we chose a name. And I’m convinced we’re going to have all girls anyway…at least that’s what I tell Fiance Wink

@Sunshine09:  i mean, to each their own, but i wouldn’t use them for my child. my cousin was waffling between Hayden and the name she actually ended up picking for her son, and I was definitely rooting for the other name. Luckily she picked it, and its super cute. 🙂

I don’t like it, but then, pretty much anything trendy gets tossed out for me. I don’t use apple products because it seems like EVERYONE has a Mac or an iPhone.

I loved the name Sophia before it was popular, but now I can’t even think about it without wincing.

And the -aydens….ugh. Totally yuck… way too mainstream.

@Nona99:  my younger brother’s name is william, he’s 12 and in my opinion the greatest 12 year old ever 😉 point being, I like older names too 🙂
