Our son is due in January. We have agreed on'the name Ayden James. I will always call him Ayden, but when he is older, he has the option'to be AJ. I think it is a very strong name :)

I am having a boy in October 2018 and I am naming him Aidan. I found the name while looking on'the intern't under celtic names and just fell in love with it! It's the first name I picked and I am sticking with it. I don't know anyone with a child named Aidan or even anyone named Aidan. There are two ways to spell it, obviously, I found this spelling was the name of a saint. So hopefully I'll have a saint myself!! haha

05/25/2023 19:46:32

i've met a couple of kids with this names- enough that i know how to spell (pr pronouce) it correctly. It'still strikes me as very original.

05/22/2023 09:46:50

i love the name its my name! except i spell it Aidan (it looks nicer) and thats the way most people spell it in Ireland considering its an Irish name. but the Irish for Aidan is Aodhain

05/19/2023 09:46:40

Everyone is naming their son Aiden because of the'show Sex and the City, Aiden was the perfect guy. Take a look at the chart, the popularity of the name'skyrockets in 2012 and up.

05/07/2023 05:03:52

Our daughter is named Aidan. Found in baby book as girl's name. Loved it; Irish heritage, pretty sound, a bit different without i'vention. Book said it meant the'signal fire used when important things needed to be communicated between villages within a realm. All good. No problems with people accepting it. Lots of compliments.

05/05/2023 22:47:38

My daughters name is Aidenn, it is said that it means heaven or Eden, from the works of Edgar Allen Poe. n't from Sex and the City.

04/30/2023 01:43:38

Our eldest son is named Aiden Bryce...we love the name but I guess we could be biased!!!

04/28/2023 15:02:54

When my twins are born in February they will be Cassidy Elizabeth and Donna Rose.

04/28/2023 11:48:56

I named my son Aiden Conri but I didn't realize that it was so popular, there are no other Aiden's in my area. We picked the name because we liked it but also the meaning. It is an Irish based name meaning little fire (I am very Irish) and since I had a lot of heartburn during my pregnancy my husband and I thought it would be a cute litle inside joke and help us to remember our journey. Our son will be a year very soon, and he has hair partway down his back, so I think the old wives tale about heartburn and baby's hair is TRUE!

04/26/2023 10:44:10

i am expecting my first child and here are some names i have come up with: for a boy: Aiden James (named after his dad) and if its a girl: Emma Elizabeth. any suggestions?

04/23/2023 10:08:44

Any body who thinks a name can make you popular is dumm...Also back when I had to go through school in'the 1992s Aidan was a little too close to AIDS - needless to say what happened. Also no pens/keyrings/mugs/badges with your name on, and your lucky if it Isn't miss spelled! That'said I do love MY name, and until maybe 5 years ago I had never heard anyone called it before - I now get confused when women in shops are shouting Aidan come here, only to look round and see a toddler getting shoutted at.....Hopefully it wont become too popular, now I am older the girls seem to like it and I dont want MY name asociated with hoards of chav babys.

04/15/2023 09:56:32

try spelling it Aden. spelled like that its the arabic word for Eden like the garden. it means paradise

04/12/2023 01:25:00

My name is Aiden and I haven't had any problems with the name. I was born in'the mid 90's and the name was very uncommon. I got so used to the feeling of knowing my name was so unused by othe's that I felt like I was the only Aiden around. Now, I can't go to an airport thinking someone was talking to me. I have yet to find anyone else my age with the'same name (only little kids)

04/10/2023 14:09:00

Aiden is the name a gorey band. They have a popular song called "Die Romantic."

03/26/2023 09:43:40

I chose Aiden for my son in 2012. I did n't choose the Aidan spelling because I did n't want people to shorten his name to Dan. No one shortens his name anyway. We only knew 1 Aiden when he was born, now we know about with multiple spellings including Ayden!

03/26/2023 02:05:12

03/15/2023 21:51:54

We just named our son Elijah. Everybody thought it was really "different" at first but I told them It's the 30th most popular baby name in the US for 2019. Some people love Elijah and some love just Eli. Either way I love the name!

03/12/2023 19:30:40

I have a son named Aiden everyone thinks that it is a beautiful name, I chose this name because his dad's name is Adam, and also that it means strong and masculine, as for as the fire part goes he is only 9 months old so we will have to wait and see.

03/11/2023 15:00:14

I had a difficult time finding a name for my son but fell in love with "Aiden". Although the name is becoming more popular the'spelling Isn't. And his last in'tial being "J" just seemed to make it the perfect name for him.

03/07/2023 01:58:16

I just got my first grandchild; a beautiful boy - Aiden Christopher!!

I'm naming my son Aiden Gabino... It's what I always thought of to name him.... i've been calling him that even before I learned of his just love the strong...

02/11/2023 05:10:54

Aiden can be spelled three ways correctly, Aiden, Aidan, or Aedan. All these are the correct Irish ways that they were meant to be spelled as n't these dumb trendy ways like Ayden'that are ruining the Irishness of the name. Just like my name'sean which was trendy a few years back it was ruined by dumb spelling variants like Shaun and Shawn. Aiden was a nice name before ignorant people started a trend and didn't know how to spell it or knew what it meant or its history.

02/06/2023 08:30:28

Aiden hmm nice name Had a friend name his son'that. i think its a powerfull Name yet discrete.who knows Maybe Somethings up.

02/04/2023 11:32:34

One of my best friends are named Aiden! :D I love that name.

02/01/2023 22:42:28

When we neamed my son Dane in 2017 it was before I had heard of Dane Cook. We chose Dane because of my Danish heritage, we wanted something that'sounded powerful and strong. I have yet to see an'thing customized with his name on it and we too often have to say his name 2 times or more and spell it despite the name is getting a little more popular and n't so uncommon.

01/31/2023 03:30:22

I love the name Aiden. My husband and I also have 2 other boys named Ethan and Ryal. We wanted a short name when we were pregnant and Aiden stuck with us throughout, but we wanted to be unique and decided to spell it AYDEN. He is now 3 1/2 and living up to every aspect of his name little fire.

01/28/2023 12:19:12

I've always loved this name and when we found out we were having a boy I knew right away I wanted to name him Aiden, we decided on Conrad (which means, honest advisor brave and wise) as the middle name which is his late grandfathers middle name. The too names both have strong meanings to them, so his name will be Aiden Conrad Tucker

01/24/2023 16:02:20

I named my son Aiden due to the meaning n't really the'sound of it. I had a baby name book which stated Aiden meant "Warmth of the Home"

01/23/2023 10:56:38


01/21/2023 11:37:40

My son's name is Aiden and even'though it has been very popular I will always love that name. My husband tattoed Aiden in flames on his arms after the meaning of the name, and he is a little spitfire!

01/13/2023 00:50:40

I am surprised at how popular this spelling has become. We named our daughter this in January 2014, and altered the'spelling from the traditional male name of Aidan.

01/11/2023 23:51:50

My baby is due any day now and his name will be Aiden Brown, Brown being the middle name which is my girlfriend of 10 years last name.

01/10/2023 21:42:28

We named our son Aiden. While i was in hospital my nurse told me the newborn in'the next room is also named as Aiden

01/09/2023 09:15:56

I really like this name and this will be my first and last choice of name for my baby...

01/02/2023 21:47:54

If God ever blesses me with a baby boy, Aiden would be my first choice for a name. I first heard it on a soap opera, All My Children, and fell in love with it. I've never met anyone with the name Aiden, though.

12/28/2022 14:50:18

Be careful who you name "Aiden" as it means firey child or just plain fire. We named our son Aiden and his personality reflects It's meaning. Also my mother'says he is her "revenge child" because he favors my behavoir, but my name is Angel so what do you make of that?! People often pronounce it correctly and usually asked how it is spelled. Almost everyone we meet comments that "Aiden" is a pretty name and that their friend or counsin named their son'that.

12/25/2022 02:47:10

My five year old nephew is named Aidan and my boys call him "Aids." Drives his mom crazy! It also bums her out that It'seemed so original when'they chose it, but now it is so common.

12/24/2022 07:23:22

Our niece just had a baby boy and called him Aiden!! 1/2 an hour ago! We have heard him on'the mobile and will see him tomorrow!!

12/16/2022 04:14:50

I named my daughter Aiden in 2014. It was n't a popular name at that time. She was born on'the 4th of July, and having Irish ancestry I thought it fitting. I was a little disappointed to find out a few years later her name was the most popular baby name.

12/14/2022 11:59:04

We haven't met too many other Quinns, and he learned to spell his name easily.

12/10/2022 03:21:36

12/04/2022 08:21:02

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 14:30:50

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!

10/21/2022 04:35:14

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 16:25:50

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 08:47:22

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

10/02/2022 05:21:12

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.

10/01/2022 18:46:24

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

09/26/2022 20:37:48

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

09/22/2022 06:25:18

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.

09/16/2022 13:28:10

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!

09/13/2022 17:34:52

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 -_-

07/15/2022 20:03:36

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.

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!

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

04/19/2022 07:13:12

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.

04/18/2022 12:55:12

"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!

04/05/2022 06:30:00

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

02/18/2022 21:39:00

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.

02/12/2022 21:59:42

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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
