Meaning of Camden

Camden is the transferred use of an English surname that was derived from a place name. The original settlement, Campedene, was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is situated in Gloucestershire, England. The name comes from the Olde English word “campa-denu” from the Latin “campus” ('field, enclosure') and “denu” ('valley'). Therefore, the location meant a valley with campsites. Camden's name is a modern development following the popular trend of using surnames as given names, particularly distinct from the United States.


Master Number Twenty-Two combines the traits of two-year-olds and Fours into one powerful force. References to the Master Builder and "big business" serve to underline the enormous potential of this personality. Twenty-one two-year-olds are fearless leaders, innovative thinkers, extremely prudent, and highly organized. As such, they are capable of manifesting something of the greatest importance that will have a lasting impact on this world. Master Numbers carry with them a great sense of responsibility, so they can be a burden. However, Twenty Twos are action takers and takers. Also, this personality exhibits traits of the Twos, which brings sensitivity, spirituality and harmony.


The Camden name first appeared on the US popularity charts in 1990 and has gained a lot of ground over the last 20 years, rising more than 800 positions on the list of the most commonly used boys' names. The Kamden spelling variation debuted on the road charts in 2004, but its sibling in popularity. Camden is a very popular name in New Hampshire and Maine, where it is a Top 70 favorite among boys. It is also a Top 100 in Nebraska and Kansas. We wonder if he made the Top 100 in Maryland, the home of Camden Yards (where the Baltimore Orioles play), but he doesn't. They also like the use of last names as given names. Given these two trends, it's no wonder Camden has shown recent chart success. How long it can sustain that is yet to be determined.

My name is Camden and I have always loved my name! :) People always tell me how unique it is and that they love my name. I'might be the only female "Camden" around! :) I have never met anyone else with the name Camden. This is probably because I am 17 and my name has just recently gained popularity.

My name is Camden. I am a 17 year old girl from California. Growing up, it was strange enough to n't be named Jessica or Katie, but then'to have a weird foreign boy's name- well, you can imagine what my mother had to put up with. Still, when I'matured, I grew to like the name very much and I'm now very happy to be named Camden. It's especially lovely to know that there are whole towns that'share my name.

I named my son Camden Cole in 2005. I loved the nickname Cam but didn't wanted to name my son Cameron because it means crooked nose?! I also wanted a strong masculine name and Camden fit the bill. I wish people would n't use this name for girls - the best boys names always seem to get "stolen".

I love this name for a boy or a girl. We should find out the'sex in'the next few weeks but have settled on Camden either way. Camden'thomas (hubby's name) for a boy or Camden Davis (my maiden name) for a girl. So cute, I love that is it unique but n't wacky.
