I named my son Aidan, gosh I love the name but I had no idea how popular it was, he will be 3 soon and I know about 3 other boys named Aidan around his age.

9/23/2022 3:02:36 PM

When I named my son this 4 years was NEVER heard of. He was born in May. That year Aidan was the #1 boys name...go figure. I tried to be unique. Haha! It's a perfect name for my son. He just fits it. He's so friendly but has a short temper.

As a teacher It's difficult to find a name that is "special." I fell in love with the name AidEn in'the early '90's. My husband and I had a difficult time conceiving, so when I found out I was pregnant I knew the baby had to have this name. One meaning we saw was "warmth of the house" and our boy is that! As for the'spelling, I asked my 7th graders at the time how'd they spell it. The E won! While we know It's popular, he's the only Aiden in his grade of 150 students; It'seems after 2012 that it really became well-known.

I love Aidan my son who is 3 & 1/2 yrs old, we loved the name, it perfectly fits hims as he is hyoperactive as the name'suggests fury, he is always a fire in'the house with n't resting a single moment, also he is good at his kinder garden school. I love him , he is my only adorable angel

9/7/2022 10:13:42 AM

My 12 year old brothe's name is Aidan i love the name and he is so mean sometimes but we are irish twins so we get along easily and i hope he'sees this

9/3/2022 10:28:30 AM

It's a great name, my husband and I agreed to it as soon as we found out it was boy! It's great that we chose the name because there's no Aiden's on either side of our family, so talking about a common name, NOT in our families! WOOHOOO!!!!!

8/28/2022 9:54:18 AM

We chose the name Easton Kade for one of our twins, born in August, 2021, after'searching for months for a second name. His twin brother is Colton and his older brother is Rylan.

8/9/2022 6:28:12 PM

We named our son Aidan because we liked the name. We were looking over the list of names which are used in USA and ALBANIA, so Aidan was one of them. BTW it is an old Illyrian/Albanian name as well, n't only Irish ;) At the hospital we were told that Aidan was for girls and Aiden was for boy, the lady was just ignorant --- AIDAN is a BOY's name.

8/8/2022 9:25:30 PM

I really like this name. It's the exact reverse of my name, Nadia. =)

7/19/2022 7:13:12 PM

I have never known an Aiden, I will certanily put it in my list to consider.

7/1/2022 5:36:54 AM

We named our son Aiden a few years ago. Now It'seems like everyone is named Aiden. I still like the name though. We are now expecting a girl and we want to make sure we don't name her an'thing too popular.

6/20/2022 10:33:54 PM

We named our son Aidan in 2010 the only comment I got about it was, did we named him that from the main characters boyfriend on Sex in'the City. At the time I had never'seen'the'show. We picked the name out of a baby book. After about 2012 I saw a lot of babies named Aidan.

5/22/2022 2:55:48 PM

My son's name is Aidan. The most common problem is that it is misspelled Aiden. When he began Kindergarten in 2016, there was an Aidan in 1st grade and an'ther Aidan in his Kindergarten class. Unfortun'tely the other Aidan moved to an'ther city last summer, so my son is the only Aidan at his school right now (the'school only goes K - 2; then'the next campus is 3-5).

4/27/2022 9:12:00 AM

His family has a thing of having the Father's name as the first son's name. I do not want a James the third, so I decided to make that the middle name. I really like the way Aidan James sounds.

3/14/2022 4:36:36 PM

My friends husband was called Aidan and It was the first time I'd heard it. I loved the name and years later we had a little boy and named him Aidan. I Still love the name and my boy who is 12 now. Only thing that gets us annoyed is people spelling it wrong. Sometimes my boy wishes we'd given him a different name but he does like it.

3/5/2022 7:31:12 AM

My one year old son's name is Aidan. Please often spell it Aiden, which I don't like nearly as much. I have loved the name Aidan for years and my husband likes it as well so as soon as I became pregnant, we knew our child would be named Aidan if we had a boy. We only wish the name were less common. Aidan is a very old name but we hadn't realized how many "sound-alike" names were now popular. There were n't many children in our social circles but since having Aidan, we are con'tantly meeting Cadens and Jayden and Haydens, etc.

2/20/2022 9:20:06 AM

We chose this name for our wonderful son (almost 3 years old now). Great Irish boy name. It is unique and we have yet to meet another'sullivan, although a TV personality just named his son Sullivan, so we look for more to show up eventually. TWO THUMBS UP.

2/14/2022 12:31:48 AM

My name is Aidan and I was born in 2001 back when'the name was virtually non-existent. i've never had anyone in my class named Aidan and around 2016-2017 I suddenly started hearing my name crop up everywhere. It honestly pissed me off. I wish people would stop jumping on'the band wagon. However, if you want to name your kid Aidan... Please at least spell it right. It's Aidan. n't Aiden, n't Ayden or any other variation. Go with the traditional Gaelic or the common usage in Ireland (Aidan). I'm tired of parents trying to put a unique spelling on a name which they were just too ignorant to look up. It wasn't until the 4th grade that a teacher'spelled my name right (last and first) and people continue to spell my name wrong.

1/28/2022 7:45:36 AM

I named my son Aidan in 1997. Since then i've heard or seen it a number of times, but generally with much younger boys. Yes, he has the'same problems with spelling and pronunciation. I think it will become more popular- seems people should be ready for something "new".

1/6/2022 2:18:54 AM

We named our 9 mth old son Jasper - everytime someone meets him they comment on what a beautiful name it is. We love it!

1/2/2022 5:54:00 AM

I love this name! Defin'tely on'the top of our list for a boy!

11/19/2021 2:19:48 AM

My husband and I named our little boy Aidan in 2017. I do n't know any other Aidan's and most people tell me that they have never heard the name but they love it! Some people do want to spell it Aiden, though!

10/31/2021 6:12:54 PM

My brother's name is Aidan. I love the name but my only problem with it is that it has blasted into popularity. Because of that fact and because he goes to school with so many "Aiden"s, people frequently misspell it as such. The'schooling system sometimes mail us letters with his name'spelled wrong! But I still love his name and describes him well.

9/19/2021 12:23:42 PM

My son who was born in 2015 is Aidan. I love the name but it is too popular now!

9/16/2021 11:11:42 AM

Funny, I am due 3/29/08 and Aidan/Aiden is at the top of my list as well. I can't decide on'the'spelling though. Thoughts?

9/7/2021 2:06:18 AM

I love this name, I am the mother of a AIDAN. My son was born after my girl NADIA (meanning - hope) who is 2 years older than her brother. I did n't plan it ahead, and was so happy to find it.

8/11/2021 11:26:06 AM

I named my son Aidan. I agree with the biggest problem is people spelling it Aiden. We named him Aidan because Aidan means fire and he was born a leo which is a fire sign. Its a very popular name right now, so I think he might n't like it later on just because so many people going to school with him will have the'same name.

8/6/2021 4:15:00 AM

My son was born in 2012, and we spell it traditionally with the "an", the "en" makes me cringe. At the time, no one we knew had ever heard of the name-it was fun'to feel a little original, but in'the grades below him it is quite popular. I love the name, I just wish people would spell it right.

7/27/2021 2:35:06 PM

LOVE THIS NAME! It is so beautiful and matches anyones personalIt's!

7/15/2021 10:35:42 PM

I'm a 45 Y/O male named Aidan, pronounced the'same as the city Aden. My name has been mispronounced as far back as I can remember, more often'than n't it was pronounced Adian or Adrian but this has never bothered me. Until recently, wherever I ever went and heard "Aidan" called out, it was always me that they were calling to, but now I find there are many more Aidans out there than just me. I'm proud to be an Aidan.

7/15/2021 4:11:24 PM

I found it nice because My husband and I are Turkish-Persian-American.we are looking for a name which is nice and meaningful in 3 languages!If it is spelled Aidan it means brightness and well_being.

7/14/2021 9:53:24 PM

Loved this name when I gave it to my son in 2012, but now I am disappointed with its popularity as know he will n't have a unique name like I had intended.

7/13/2021 5:37:48 AM

My son is named Aidan. People misspell it all the time as Aiden or Aden.
