When we named our son Aidan in 2004 even many of our Irish friends were n't that familiar with it. Some friends and acquaintances had never even heard of it, and that was just fine for us. We wanted our sonýs name to be unique, n't popular! In kindergarten he had 4 Alexýs in'the class, and that would have driven me crazy. I love the name but wish it had n't become so popular

11/25/2022 2:30:50 PM

My son's name is Aiden (he's almost four). We knew no Aidens when he was born- and now we run into them everywhere. I love that is sounds masculine- and it works well for us. However, if You're looking for a name to be uniquely yours- keep looking!

11/20/2022 11:40:06 AM

I love the name! I don't run into many people with it!

11/13/2022 7:09:20 AM

My husband and i are expecting our first child this jan. and we are going to name him Ayden Kole Jessop. I think it has such a ring to it! my husband picked Ayden and I Kole. I cant wait to meet my little boy!

11/5/2022 11:59:52 PM

My brothers name is Aiden William after my dad.

10/21/2022 4:35:14 AM

My husband picked this name out 2 years ago....and YES now according to certain sIt's its "over'sed" which actually hurts my feelings. I had never even heard of the name before we found it, let alone run into anyone with that name.

10/10/2022 4:25:50 PM

Me and my man are thinking about naming our future son Aiden. We live in Sweden, so It's absolutely n't a common name here, which is perfect! However, I think many will spell his name "Aidan"... hmm.. well, n't a problem, since It's such a beautiful name, and the pronounciation of the two names are the'same...!=)

10/10/2022 8:47:22 AM

I'm due in march and the babys name will be Aiden James

10/7/2022 5:53:50 PM

My only grandson's name. Of course, it is a great name.

10/4/2022 4:22:32 AM

It's my son's name and he lives up to the name daily!!

10/2/2022 5:21:12 AM

I named my son aiden 7 years ago because it was a name that i had only heard of once.I spelt it with an E in'tead of an A to be different and now there is haden,jaden,and caden.My son fits the meaning of his name to the T.I still love the name just wish it wasn't so popular.

10/1/2022 6:46:24 PM

If you look up the meaning- It'simply states "strong and masculine"

9/26/2022 8:37:48 PM

We named our son Aiden. When we tell people what his name is, they always ask how to spell it.

9/22/2022 6:25:18 AM

My grandson was just named Aiden, born on'the 3rd of July. Has an Irish heritage so that goes well with the name. Just n't sure about how he will like it in'the future. He was given'two middle names that are strong and traditional so he has choices if he needs them.

9/16/2022 1:28:10 PM

Our son's name is Ayden Orion. he'sure lives up to his name everyday. But then, the'sweetness in'that little (BIG) heart of his will soften you right up, into a big pile of mush. Inter'sting that he thinks flames are the coolest thing to have on his bike and an'thing. And a Leo at that (a fire sign). Coincidentally, I just figure this inter'sting fact out. Huh... It all makes sense now. Have a wonderful Day!

9/13/2022 5:34:52 PM

YYYEEEEAAAAAHHHHH More people with my name! My mom spelled it with an E because she didn't want people to call me Eye-An. Now they just call me Een -_-

Our son is called Aiden. He has a strong character and is very fiesty!! Where I live the name is n't common, which is good. Most people pronounce it correctly.

7/15/2022 8:03:36 PM

I have always loved this name. My daughters who are 9 & 11 are named Emily and Talia. If we have a third girl her name will be Aiden. I think its strong but still feminine for a girl.

I love that name!!! I usually am very picky with baby names, but I just adore this name

5/19/2022 5:29:42 AM

Our 4 year old sons name is Aiden Gabriel and we just LOVE IT! I always had my heart set on'that name even before it became trendy. Our son was born in 2015, so I think that we might have just missed the "too trendy" cut off. I would n't have cared any way- we just love it. Aiden means "Little firey one" and out little guy is definietly that at times:)Everyone tells us how much they just adore his name- Only boy in his entire preschool with that name! Don't worry about what anyone else thinks of your child's name. It is your choice and your baby will have that name the rest of their lives, so make sure It's what YOU want!

5/16/2022 10:42:00 AM

4/21/2022 12:17:24 PM

boring...aiden caiden jaiden...can't anyone be original?

4/19/2022 7:13:12 AM

We named one of our twins Cameron back in 2006. I usually call him by his full name "Cameron" but my husband always called him by different nicknames when he was young, "Cami" or "Camilee". Now that he is 14, he doesn't like being referred to as Cami. I never would have thought of the nickname Ron. We chose the name because we really liked it, it was unique, and at the time I hadn't heard of any other Camerons. I would never have thought it to be a girl's name. We have only met a couple other Cameron's but they are younger. It looks like it became a very popular name by year 2012.

4/18/2022 12:55:12 PM

"Little Fire" that what I like about Aiden. A boy with a little fire in him must be good if he knows how to use it positively. My soon'to be born son going to have a little fire in him, yah!

4/5/2022 6:30:00 AM

I am a girl named Aiden. People do have problems spelling it, and many people assume I won't act very feminine since I have this name. Until a few years ago, most people I talked to had never met someone named Aiden, so overall i have to love my name

3/10/2022 7:16:48 PM

I'm going to name my son Aiden, we are Indian Origin, and i think this name will suit him so well...and i just love the'sound of it :)

2/25/2022 2:41:24 PM

My little Aiden is such a cutie! His middle name is Christopher (after his dad). No problems with the name and Ive had TONS of people comment how much they liked the name. Its the new Adam/Michael!

2/18/2022 9:39:00 PM

boring...aiden caiden jaiden...can't anyone be original?" If that Isn't the most unoriginal thing to say . . . My Aiden is 8 months old and he is the fire in my heart, and he keeps his two older brothe's 2 and 4 busy chasing him and tickling him. You just can't have too many of that.

2/12/2022 9:59:42 PM

Aiden isnt from Sex and the City, his name was spelled Aidan.

2/9/2022 9:42:36 PM

I'm an Aiden Couper, and i love my name! =P I think, stange as it may sound, that my name had given me a great upbringing! People seem to like my name, there Isn't much trouble with spelling or pronunciation and it has a good crispness to it i think, unlike drew. It needs to be spelt A-I-D-E-n'though, aidan is too heavy with all the a's and ayden is to complex... Aiden in celtic means Fire too! and thats pretty sweet i think. I rarely find other Aiden's I live in melbourne and have only ever encountered one other person spelt my way. it was very strange... i dont know how michaels can do it! =P hope my positive attitude shines a good light on my name! see you all!

2/1/2022 4:10:30 AM

We named our son Aiden, 9 years ago after an incredible pyrotechnic show from a RUSH concert. It's Celtic for fire and he was born early the next day. By the way, his middle name is Lee after lead singer Geddy Lee of RUSH.

1/16/2022 4:41:06 PM

Love it. It means firey and this world needs more of it.

1/7/2022 12:10:12 PM

My daughter who is is 2 is named Aydan. It means "little fire" I wanted an Irish name, though I am Brazilian, Aydan's father is Irish. Aydan doesn't have much of a fiery personality but she IS sweet and LOVES people and animals. She brings warmth and light where ever'she goes which I think makes the name appropriate. I am glad to read that there are other girl Aydan's out there. I was worried she was stuck with a "boy" name and would be made fun of for it.

1/3/2022 6:36:18 AM

I have thought of the name Aidan for over a decade. I had my son in 2016 and used the name. I thought I was being original. Unfortun'tely I never watched "sex and the city" and there was a character named Aidan. The'show made the name Aidan one of the most popular in'the 2012s

11/11/2021 1:09:36 PM

I just had a baby 10 weeks ago and named him Aidan. Most people spell it with an e in'tead of a but we chose a. We love the name :)

10/24/2021 3:06:36 PM

My new grandson is named Aiden, my daughter chose that as there is noone in'the family with that name and everyone loves it, and they all pronounce it right too.

9/24/2021 5:51:18 AM

aiden adan mean fire.. whereas the Turkish name Aydin means enlightened or light of the moon. In islam the meaning of the name is very important so it has to be spelt the correct way. 35 weeks pregnant with a little boy. Will be naming him Aydin kamran <3

9/20/2021 8:31:30 AM

I had my daughter in March and I named her Aiden because it is a bible name...everyone said It's beautiful because its different.

9/14/2021 6:01:12 PM

The'son of the devil thing comes up a bit-but i can live with that. the name is awesome and unique!

8/17/2021 1:56:24 AM

Aiden is a fantastic name. It does n't seem so original like other names such as "tom". Every person named Aiden is very special indeed. From Aiden James Scott

8/12/2021 10:18:36 AM
