Meaning of Eden

Meaning and originality:

We all know that Eden refers to the Biblical place known as the Garden of Eden. Religiously, it is the utopian paradise where God put the first human beings that He created (Adam and Eve). Adam and Eve lived in this garden until they made a mistake and ate from the forbidden fruit.

In Hebrew, Eden means the “garden of God” or “place of pleasure, delight.” Some others suggest that it comes from ancient Aramaic and therefore means “fruitful, well-watered”. All of these potential sources are perfectly compatible with our perception of Eden as a place in heaven. But do we know where Eden is located? According to the Book of Ezekiel, the ancient Garden of Eden was located in modern day Lebanon. Another theory suggest that Eden is located in modern-day Iraq, near where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers meet in. It is safe to say that nobody knows for sure where Eden is located. As a name, Eden is a modern coinage which is mostly used in the United States. It is considered a unisex name which can be used for both boys and girls. Although, it is more common among girls.

Here are some famous people named Eden:

Eden Atwood (jazz artist)
Eden Riegel (daytime actress)
Eden Espinosa (actress)

As a first name, Eden only dates back to 1986 in America. This means that the use of this name is still fairly modern in the United States. The name itself is considered to be unisex but it is substantially more common among girls that among boys.

Currently, the name is among the Top 200 favorite names for girls and it seems that it is gaining momentum. Whether it makes to the 100 most popular names or not is something that we need to wait to see. In general, Eden is a simple and straight-forward name that does not need explanation. The only negative thing that we can say said about Eden is that unfortunately we don’t live there anymore.

This is my name (Kahlil) and the way I tell people how to pronounce it is to say the Kah part like the cu in cup and the lil part is like eel with an l stuck on the front of it. It is always spelled wrong and said wrong. I have never met anyone with the'same name, but I hear of male athletes with the name. I am a female with this name and have never heard of another female with the name.

9/18/2022 9:50:48 AM

i've had mixed feelings about my name my whole life...didn't mind it as a child (didn't know it wasn't normal), went back and forth through school, and now, as an adult, don't mind it at all. Usually I get very positive comments about it when people read it on a credit card or drivers' license--most comment that It's beautiful. But I frequently have to clarify to people when introduced--they often mistake it for Edith, Eva, or even Erin. And I can't even begin to count how many times i've heard, "Oh, like the garden?" and "So where's Adam?" Clever, eh?

9/16/2022 12:14:40 AM

I think its a lovely name for both genders. I am about to have a baby boy and planning to call him Eden. Originally in the bible it was a male name.

9/15/2022 9:00:42 PM

I love the name Eden and Im glad to see that othe's appreciate it also! I also get very cold responses when I'mention the name Eden for my future Daughter's name. But I'm very much an individualist and I know that name will suit her just fine. I'm going with Eden and Jolie for her middle name. Jolie meaning beauty in french! I can hardly wait :)

8/21/2022 12:17:24 PM

Eden is good strong name that I will name my new son. I am sick of being called John and wish my name conjured up images and story. I enjoy several things but the name John is not one of them. Eden will have his photo taken and then'that photo will be uploaded on the the internet.

8/21/2022 11:22:30 AM

My names Eden and I love it. Whoever'said It's out of the bible, You're wrong. It's a Hebrew name and It's beautiful for both boys and girls. For girls It'sounds so beautiful like an old name. It's like a name for someone with an old soul. It's just so amazing I can't even comprehend it lol. I'm Jewish but i've heard a lot of people from Israel have the name Eden.

8/10/2022 10:01:30 AM

We named our daughter Eden and think it is beautiful. especially for a girl. Although sometimes people mistake is aiden,depending on how they hear me pronounce it. My daughter is 2 and loves to say her name'so hopefully she will love it in the future.

My daughter is Eden - she truly is a "delight". People have often known a boy named Eden but not a girl.

5/14/2022 7:27:36 AM

Even if Eden was used for a boy's name it just sounds like a girl's name. I named my daughter Eden 20 years ago. I got it off a soap called Santa Barbara, Marcy Walker played the girl character name Eden. I can only see it as girls name.

5/3/2022 5:05:24 PM

We chose a variation on the name Eden and spelled it Edyn for our daughter. I think it is a beautiful name for a girl. Any way you spell it

5/2/2022 3:34:30 AM

My name is Eden and I am 21 (born in 2000). I hated it growing up and even went by my middle name for a while in my early teens but I love it now. I am a girl and have only ever heard of/met one other girl called Eden. Most Edens that I am aware of are male, though it is a fairly uncommon name anyway. I think it works well for both sexes. I have never had anyone have trouble pronouncing it though when I introduce myself I often get asked "Edith?". My nickname is Edy (pronounced Edie - I often get people mispronouncing this one). My mum decided to name me Eden after reading about Groucho Marx's wife who was also named Eden.

4/20/2022 7:00:36 AM

I also have a 2 y.o. named Lena Makeda, who is named after my aunt and sister who are Elaine. Again named after them without having to use it a 3rd time.

my sons name is eden ,hes 10yrs old,i know alot of people calls girls eden but to me it doesnt sound like a very feminine name, my son does get called "aidan"sometimes and we do shorten it to eddie for some reason but he loves his name and has never had any comments from children at school as it doesnt sound too unusual, I LOVE IT !

2/26/2022 9:54:18 AM

Our little girl is called Eden and was choosen on the grounds that we got a book from the library having failed to find a name we both liked. (three children on.) The book opened and we were both independantly imediatly captured by the name thst means perfection. When our little girl came along it was perfection. (we already had two boys!) Hardly a day goes by when I don't think how special her name is (she is seven now)

2/23/2022 9:30:54 PM

I love the name Eden, my daughter is called Eden Andzia, she is now 12, I called her this as the name means paradise and pleasantness and I wanted a name that was no well known and at the time we only knew of one other Eden on tv.

2/13/2022 8:52:12 PM

My name is Eden (like many above ^^), and I'm a 23 years old female. Since I'm from Israel (and boy is it popular here! Both boys and girls) we actually pronounce the name a bit differnetly, I beli've. We say ed-en; we pronounce the first "e" the'same way as the "e" in "elephant". It does sound a bit weird to a native English spaker, I suppose, but hey, It's the original pronounciation! :P

2/1/2022 11:29:42 AM

I am due November 2nd with my baby girl. We have decided to name her Eden Rose. I hope she will love it.

11/17/2021 12:48:54 PM

Hi, I'met a pretty girl recently named Eden. She is on holiday from Atlanta, Georgia. Sadly, she came with her b'friend. She's beautiful and friendly. It's the 1st time I'met a girl called Eden. It's a lovely name and she's a lovely hot girl.

10/18/2021 10:46:30 PM

My 9 month old daughter we called Eden Gwyneth Joy, and I can't count how many compliments we've received on her name. It'suits her perfectly. There's a 5 yr old little girl at our church named Eden, but I hadn't even met her until after my Eden was born. I think It's a gorgeous name!

10/7/2021 2:12:36 AM

My name is Eden Marie. I will be 14 this month. I love my name. It is very unique. I have only met one girl with the'same name as me. First and middle. She is in a grade above me so It's all good.

9/13/2021 11:43:12 PM

My son Eden Gabriel was born on July 18th 2018 and it just suits him so well. I still find It'strange when I hear the name used for girls and It'sounds so masculine and is traditionally a boys name. I guess It's just a matter of opinion.

8/27/2021 6:08:24 PM

My daughter's name is Eden. When anyone hears what she is named they always say that is the prettiest name ever. It is original like she is.

7/25/2021 12:21:54 AM

my beautiful daughter is called Eden - associated with paradise and pleasure and lots of lovely things - everyone remarks how beautiful it is when'they hear it. Getting more common for girls in England. Really pleased with our choice.
