Kaden is the name we chose to name our girl. maybe Kaden Raine? if It's a boy then It's Blake Konnor (we're on a K kick lol)

My niece just had her first baby this past Friday and named him Kaden Charles.

9/17/2022 1:13:30 AM

I am pregnant and our son's name is going to be Kaden Scott. Like most of the other parents who have written here, we thought we were being original, spelling with a K instead of a C (my husband - who has difficulties spelling - thought it would be easier for him to spell that way!!), but we are finding more and more children with that name (though many of my relatives are not too fond of it). Just the other day in our local paper my best friend found another boy in the next town who had actually been named Kaden Scott...the exact name of our son!

9/16/2022 2:35:44 AM

I named my son Kaden on 8/4/74 and made the name up. I had never heard it before I started "playing" with the letters to create it. I used the first part from TV show "Cade's Country" starring Glenn Ford, changed the first letter to a "K" (my daughter, who was 4, was named "Kari" so I wanted to keep with the "K" theme), and added the "n" at the end. i've not found ANYONE named Kaden before my son, but many have been named since that after hearing or seeing it. There's been many variations to the'spelling and a lot shorten it to "Kade" and variations of that'spelling, but I still cannot find anyone older than my son with the name, sooooooo I assume he is the first and I started the popularity of it, something I'm very proud of.

9/13/2022 10:31:40 AM

My son was born in Aprilof 06 and I named him Kaden. I loved the name'so much after hearing it from a girl I worked with. She made me promise her that I wouldn't name my son that because it was her'sons name. Well we got laid off a mth later and I never'saw her again So I named my son Kaden :) I think its perfect because its not an everyday name but its not too wild either<3

9/10/2022 3:31:16 PM

I have 3 month old twins....Kaden Michael and Caleb Stephen. We always get comments on what a strong name Kaden is! I love it!

9/10/2022 5:31:44 AM

my name is kaden and i like the name, but u know who really likes it? girls. girls tell me all of the time how they love my name. its kindof hart to find a good nick-name though

9/9/2022 6:04:02 PM

My 7-year-old son is named Kaden James. Prior to his birth, we had never heard of the name Kaden. We just stumbled upon it while browsing baby name books, liked the'sound, and weren't too concerned about its meaning. Someone else on this website commented: "I think Kaden will be the Jennifer of It's generation. Better to pick a name with more meaning other than "It'sounds cool" Who knows? They might be right, but there are a whole lot of other "den" names out there to disperse the "Jennifer" effect. In the year 2015 (when my son was born) Aiden was the most popular boys' name, followed by Jaden (I think), then Kaden/Caden. Somewhere down the list was Haden/Hayden. I still like the name in and of itself. However, if I were to do it over, I think I'd pick another name, simply because of It's unpredicted popularity. We also sometimes introduce him and get funny looks from people who thought we said his name was "Kaitlyn." Some of the family members thought the name'sounded like an Arabic name, like Canaan in the Bible. By the way, when we named him, we typed up a list of 30 different ways the name could be spelled, then made the mistake of asking friends/family which spelling they liked best. Some said that'spelling it with a K looked girly; othe's thought that the C looked feminine. Our advice: If you like the name, choose your spelling (preferably one of the more common ones, for the'sake of their future school teache's) and just go for it. But, be prepared to discover LOTS of Kaden's out there, several of whom will be girls.

9/3/2022 10:22:12 PM

My son's name is Kadin. Original spelling from a well known baby name book. It's Arabic and means "compassionate". I named him in 1998. He is 29. Kade is his nickname.

8/16/2022 2:21:36 AM

My wife and I named our son Kaden in Feb. 2013. At the time, we had only heard it one other time. Since then, it has exploded in popularity and there are THREE other Kadens (although a couple are spelled with C instead of K) in his Kindergarten class.

8/4/2022 2:08:06 AM

My son was born in 2016. I wanted Aiden, but my wife said no. After 2 weeks, his name was still "Baby Boy." We sat down with a book and went through the alphabet of names. I came across Cade, and played with it a bit, and came up with Kaden. I truely thought I had made it up. We found out that it is a Gaelic name, meaning "From the wetlands." By the way, it was a water-tub birth. :)

7/16/2022 10:42:00 AM

I think it is a ridiculous name. It'sounds made up. I think if one is going to stick that moniker on a male child they should at least spell it with a C

7/12/2022 9:36:18 PM

When 5 was in school It'seemed like there were more Rebecca's than there is now in class as a teacher. My mom decided to be different and spell my name Rebeca (only one c) and people have spent my whole life trying to correct me as if I have mispelled my own name.

7/7/2022 9:50:42 AM

Beautiful name. If I ever have a child, particularly a boy, this will be his name. But first, I have to find a good man to marry...a very hard task.

6/27/2022 3:36:18 PM

i am 30 years old and my name is kaden but i get asked all the time were my name comes from but i dont have a clue i do get sick of peaple saying thats an unusual name isnt it .what do u say to that . in high school my friends name was kade.

6/24/2022 7:05:06 AM

My youngest son is called Kaden. We live in the UK and thought we were making the name up as a form of Cadyn (Irish). I have only come across one other here. We get huge amounts of compliments on his name. Don't want it getting too popular though. We chose it to be unusual.

6/18/2022 10:04:12 PM

I have a 10 month old son called Kaden Anthony. I found the name on a website an had never heard of anyone called Kaden but now there are loads of Kadens in the uk. I love the name an hope he loves it when he's older.

6/13/2022 9:23:42 AM

My son,Kaaden Avery Grant is now 6 years old. I too had heard the name a few times, years previous. Always spelled Caden, Kaden, Cayden, Kayden, Kaiden, Caiden and so on. I got the'spelling from a couple young ladies who attended a master's class at u.n.i. with my husband. He was told it meant friend? I love the name and hear the j,b, a, l,h, and even'tayden. Loved it.

6/9/2022 12:10:12 AM

My nine year old is name Kaden. I first hear the name frm the Montel WillI'ms Show. The'show was about a mother who got pregnant right before she was locked up in prison, thinking it would reduce her'sentance. It didn't. Anyway, she named her'son Kaden.Nice eh?

6/5/2022 6:30:00 AM

My 1 yr old nephew is named Kaden. Everyone loves it and finds it original. I had no idea it was growing in popularity so much. One problem though is that I constantly have to spell it for people. They've never heard it before and some don't get it.

6/2/2022 11:36:00 PM

The name Kadijah is a muslim name. Kadijah was the Prophet Mohammed wife. I havent met anyone name Kadijah as yet. The correct spelling is KADIJAH, MY NAME IS ACTUALLY SPELLED KADIDIA which is wrong but anyway I love my name.

5/29/2022 7:58:12 AM

Kaden is similar to Caiden, a name which comes from a mixing of Hebrew and Greek. The C/K previx in Hebrew means "like," "as," or "similar;" while Aiden comes from Greek and is the perfect past participle of the word meaning "to see." The translation of the word is generally, "behold!" so it has the connotation of knowledge. When you mix the two words together, it means something similar to "like one who knows."

5/27/2022 1:04:12 AM

Kaden is the coolest name in the world! my name is kaden ans im 13! i wonder is im the first Kaden?

5/23/2022 4:33:00 PM

i had my 4th child a boy, i named Kaden Finley, he is a gorgeous blue eyed, red head baby.I didnt really research the name before and thought it was rarer than it turned out to be, It'seems evrybody knows someone with the name,but i still love it!

5/19/2022 10:04:12 AM

We named our son Kaden at first I didn't like it until a few days ago I hadnt heard that many Kadens Now that I have read some of your meanings of Kaden means fighter. Thru my prgnancy I was in the hospital all threw the day i gave birth and with every day thanking the good lord for haveing the ill of our son to fight the name'suits him well..

5/13/2022 12:21:00 AM

I too have a KADEN, and like many other parents, we thought we made it up I have only heard of 2 othe's, and they came after I had my son. I was blown away when I seen how many there are. I just hope I don't see any bookmarkers with KADEN on them just yet, I like to think he is the original :-)

5/2/2022 8:02:42 PM

My husband and I picked the name because It'seemed "original" and we wanted our son to have a name that'seperated him. He is 2 now and we have come to realize that the name is all over! I wouldn't recommend it if You're looking for something new and different, but I do love the name. We've seen It'spelled Cayden, Caden, Kayden, and Kaden... we picked the later.

5/2/2022 6:12:54 PM

kaden well you pronounce it like kay-den and its my brother they usally pronounce it right though when we meet new people they usally think its a wonderfull name but kaden is sweet and he knows this other boy whos name is kaden and It'sounds the'same but It'spelled like caden and he used to be mean but now hes nice!

5/1/2022 12:01:12 PM

We are expecting Caden Christian on June 21st and we are very excited, why do people feel the need to comment when you tell them your baby's name? We're n't going to change it...

4/30/2022 5:49:30 AM

HI'my name is Kaden, Im from Australia and love my name. I was named after the Irish night Ka and my parents added den. I have only just started finding people naming there children Kaden in the last 2 years. If you are named Kaden carry this name with pride!

4/24/2022 8:54:54 AM

Hi there, my name is Joachim Kaden. I guess even if I am not carrying "Kaden" as my first name - it is a surname here in Germany. If you check on the German telephone books you can find hundrets of us. "Kaden" is the name of a village here in Germany, where all Kadens have there roots. Regards from Germany Joachim Kaden

4/24/2022 12:40:48 AM

My grandson's name is Michael Kaden and we call him Kaden. He was born in December 2018. We had only heard the name one other time and it was spelled differently. I understand that it is now a very popular name. We get positive comments all the time about the name. We love the name and it fits our little boy perfectly.

4/23/2022 7:11:24 PM

My son's name is Kaden and we chose the beginning letter as opposed to with a C, because It'seemed more masculine. When we decided on it in 2012, it was not nearly as popular as it is now, but we are fine with the fact that is more common now.

4/19/2022 9:03:00 AM

I just had a little boy and named him Kaden Cash. he's such a sweet baby and has beautiful blue eyes and dark hair. Five years ago I liked the name and had It'stuck with me, even'though after I first heard it my cousin named her little boy Kaden. I hate when people spell his name Kayden...I feel like it looks girly.

4/16/2022 4:05:06 PM

My nephew is named Kaiden Jacob. He was born in Australia, June 2017. I like it because it is easy to pronounce correctly, a strong name for a boy, and reminds me of one of my hero's Kieren Perkins - 'the King' of 1500m freestyle.

4/14/2022 8:09:54 PM

It was so hard for us to think of names when we discovered we were having a boy. But I narrowed my list down to 5 names. (Kaden was not on my list.) However as time passed by, all the names on my list became less attractive to me. I wanted a name that was different but not too different or common. I thought of Kaden about 2 weeks before my due date. When'the form for my son's birth certificate came home, I thought about changing his name because of how popular 'Kaden' became. But my husband wanted to stick with it. However, when I look at his face I can't imagine calling him by any other name. (His middle name, of Vietnamese origin, means 'glorious'.)

4/13/2022 1:58:12 PM

Kaden is my baby's name,but usually people dont know how to pronounce it.

4/9/2022 2:54:54 AM

We also have a Raegan Alexis! We were going to name her Alexis Raegan but a few weeks before she was born there were at least 5 Alexis's born in our area. My sister-in-law suggested a switch and we did it. Her name is a perfect fit for her!

4/7/2022 2:25:12 AM

My 22month old name is kaden. I had only heard it once on tv. I think it is a great name.

3/28/2022 4:31:12 AM

I have a 18 month old son named Kaden Karl. Karl is his father. He is without a doubt 100% boy. I didnt know until recently that is means fighter...that explain alot! lol I personally think Kaden is a boys name It'sounds masculine. Kadence is for a girl

3/23/2022 11:58:30 AM

We named our son Kaden in 2007, picking the name from the'scotch heritage (from the wetlands spelled Caden), but decided to go with Kaden with a K since his dad's name begins with a K! At that time you never hardly heard the name! Unusual though that an acquaintance & I pregnant at the'same time & our sons born the'same month, never discussed names, but both of us named our sons Caden/Kaden!

3/10/2022 7:23:06 AM

My husband's name is Kaden and his 35 years old. His mother named him from the letters of 3 friends, Ka-Kathy, De-Debbie, and n-Brenda. I love the name and its uniqueness!

3/10/2022 6:28:12 AM

Kaden is similar to Caiden, a name which comes from a mixing of Hebrew and Greek. The C/K prefix in Hebrew means "like," "as," or "similar;" while Aiden comes from Greek and is the perfect past participle of the word meaning "to see."

3/10/2022 2:48:36 AM

Kaden is my last name. We pronounce it with a long "a" sound as in "grade" though I beli've there is a village in Germany between Dresden and Berlin (which is in the general area of my ancestors) that is pronounced "Kaden" as in "cod"

3/2/2022 10:47:24 PM

I named my son Kaden with a "K" because It's Arabic for "companion" whereas "Caden" is American meaning "fighter". I was originally going to name him with a "c" until I found out the meaning. I figured my husband doesn't need a fighter in the house, and I'd rather a companion. :)

3/2/2022 11:48:36 AM

We adopted a little boy at 11 months old and changed his name to Xander, at first I almost regret it cause its hard for people to say.I love his name now cause its unique and he has turned out to be very unique.It means "great leader". We pronounce the X and he is now 4 and he corrects people if they don't pronounceit right,so cute!

3/1/2022 3:47:06 AM

My sister in law, who just married my husband's brother, is already calling dibs on names (even'though she's not pregnant) and Kaden is number one on her list. We're naming our son Aiden when he comes this spring and she was pretty mad because she thought it was too close. (Imagine how mad she's going to be when we also use the name Ethan!!) I like Kaden but my husband, and several other guys, do not.

2/15/2022 9:21:54 PM

My father in law is a Palestinian I'migrant and our third son is named Kaden after one of his uncles. So, anyone who thinks this is a "faux" name, is simply under-educated about names from different ethnicities and is making incorrect assumptions. There is a city in Iran called Khaden. Google it. :)

2/8/2022 9:06:36 AM

My son is named kaden zero he's about to be 5 months!I didnt know ther was so many people named kaden. when I named him that I thought I'made it up!

2/7/2022 6:28:12 PM

I love the name which is what we named our first child. We knew too many Calebs (our first choice) but wanted something similar. Two weeks after he was born the'same hospital had 5 more Kadens added on thier baby web page. Kinda disappointing because we thought it was original. Still love it though.

2/4/2022 8:07:12 AM

my 2year old is called kaden'tomas and i love his name'so much, however his little brother is due in 15 weeks and i cant find a name i love as much for my 2nd son.

2/3/2022 3:45:18 AM

I know a Kaden, he is 15 and he is the coolest guy I know! yer he has the funniest hummor nd I love him so much!!

1/17/2022 7:19:30 AM

We named our son Kaden because it was different but sounded very strong and masculine. Now, it is funny but he has two other Cadens (spelled with the C not K) in his class, never mind how many are in the'school at large. So much for picking an unusual name. But we still love it (and him!!!)

1/14/2022 11:30:36 PM

I love this name! Kaden Michael will be my baby boys name Michael after his father. I wish I could spell it different without making it difficult for him to learn or get made fun of for it.

1/13/2022 11:49:30 AM

We named our 1year old daughter Maeve. It is a beautiful name. It'seems to be growing in popularity. Very original and strong.

1/2/2022 11:17:06 PM

I named my son Kaden Race in July 2017. Kaden after me, Lisa Kay. Most of my nieces and nephe's have names that begin with a K. I love the way Kaden is spelled and how his name'sounds. Now that I see his name means "fighter" explains a lot. Other than the boy having a lot of fight in him, he is smart, articulate, creative, and oh, so handsome!

12/25/2021 2:54:00 PM

my son is 2.5 yrs old Kaden James (James is a family name). it was the only name in the baby book that'stood out to us. On the day that he was born, Feb 12 2017, there was another lady in the'same room as my wife who had named her baby Kaden as well. I love the name. Strong, sweet and original.

12/16/2021 8:33:18 AM

I have a four year old grandson named Kaden and had never heard the name before my daughter named him that...her'second son she named Kaleb...I love the names...

12/3/2021 12:12:00 PM

My son was born in 2018 and I thought I was being original as well but as everyone has already stated It's becoming a very popular name. I still love it though. My whole family has K names so It's perfect for us.

11/26/2021 12:45:18 PM

My son was born Feb 2008, and his dad wanted him to be named Kaden after the video game mortal combat...........After the'strong dude, Raden...Just with a "K" instead. I love it, and everyone else seems to love it too!! It is a very masculine name...

11/17/2021 10:52:48 PM

I have a 6 month old grandson named Kaden ~ we too fill like we have an "original". His father is a firefighter and we loved that it meant fighter. May God bless "all" the little Kaden's in this world. :-)

11/17/2021 8:08:06 PM

My 3 month old sons name is kayden. That name'suits him so well because it means fighter and we almost lost him to abruptual placenta. So i know he's a fighter. That is why this name is the best name for my little man.

11/16/2021 3:46:12 PM

My one year old is called Kaden Benjamin. I think the name is perfect. I hear about the name being used, yet I have not met any other Kadens or any other variations. I think it is more popular up north. Here in the'south East people are still pleasantly surprised when'they hear this original name.

11/11/2021 6:45:18 AM

My 2 yr old son name is Kaden. The thing I hate is my daughter name is Kaylah and EVERYONE insist on spelling his name like his sister's. I hate when'they spell it Kayden, that's sooo incorrect, lol. I get the'same way, my name is Fatimah and most people refuse to put the H at the end of my name.

11/1/2021 10:34:48 PM

My four year old loves his name he'says HI to everyone and spells it beacause he had so may repeats that I used to spell it to them now He does "HI'my name is kaden K-A-D-E-N i laugh and people love it

10/23/2021 1:35:42 AM

My last name is Kaden. It is very stange for me to see all these people with my last name as their first name.

10/21/2021 12:11:06 AM

I am 15 weeks pregnant and if i have a boy he will be Kaden willI'm i love it and its the only name my fiance agreed with me on

10/4/2021 2:50:24 AM

My son's name is Kaden Maximo. My husband and I are avid cyclists and we thought we made the up from the word 'cadence'. Switched the 'c' to a 'k' and came up with Kaden, only to realize how many more there are in the world. Very funny.

9/26/2021 11:44:06 PM

My nephew was just born May 14,2021 and my mother was just looking for a name that'she had never heard before so we all sat down and thought about Jaden but decided that it was not a good enough name'so we just decided on Kaden just because it means Friend or Companion and also Conquerer.

9/23/2021 9:37:12 PM

Like everything else in life everyone wants what everyone has. I think people should stay away from the baby name books and search for original names for their children. This name is getting way to popular it is taking all the pizazz out of the beautiful name.

9/1/2021 6:00:18 PM

My 10 month old son's name is Kaden. I had heard the name once (they spelled their's with a "C" though) and had always liked it. (It was also the only name my husband would agree on!) I didn't think it was that popular until I named him. Now, in my small town of 3600, I know of 3 othe's with the'same name!!

8/31/2021 1:38:24 PM

Grandsons name Kaden Cole him to bits

8/29/2021 5:43:12 PM

This is a name passed down among girls in my family since at least the late 1800's - given'to my daughter, my mother and her mother and I imagine more going further back.

8/26/2021 9:12:00 AM

Ilove this name. When my son was born 16 months ago i had never heard it before so i was convinced I'made it up.

8/22/2021 1:48:18 AM

i found the name Kaden on the internet in the unusual baby boy names and loved it and since i was having a boy thats what we named him Kaden bailey,and now i hear that name all the time,but its still beautiful no matter how many times i hear it,I LOVE IT!!

8/17/2021 1:50:06 PM

8/3/2021 7:37:30 AM

I named my son Kaden Michael on Feb 8, 2019. I found the name online and loved it. I live in South Louisiana and the name Kaden is not common around here much less spelled this way. We get alot of positive comments on his name and we usually have to spell it for them. By the way I am the father who picked this name.

7/30/2021 6:31:48 PM

My best friend has a little chap called Kaden - couldn't work it out at first - but am converted Chris

7/22/2021 10:57:18 PM

My 3 year old son is named Kaden Paul and it is a beautiful name for a very strong and beautiful son. I wish it wasn't so popular as there are MANY children with that name! Doesn't matter - my Kaden is the true Kaden! Always will be!!

I named my cat Kaden and after hearing almost 200 other names, this was the only one that felt right.

My son Kaden is now 7&1/2 months old. I first saw the name on the cover of a baby book and loved it. I never heard of the name before and thought it would be perfect because looking in name books It's always the'same top 10 names for boys. Sorry Kaden your name is "popular" but we still LOVE YOU!
