A little bit ostracising if you ask me but there's no denying that the name is gorgeous!) We're going with Aiden Kade. Everyone has loved it and twice we have been told that it's a "strong" name that sounds great for a boy. Wouldn't every guy in high school like to have a sporty, tough sounding name?!!

I was a little disappointed to find out a few years later her name was the most popular baby name." Dec. 15, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I hate the names Aiden and Jayden- not because they aren't nice names, which they are indeed. The problem I have with both those names is the fact that they have become such a fad. They're over-used to the point where they've become common and passe. Parents in this country need to be more original and quit hopping on bandwagons, it's stupid."

  • "My name is Aidan, I'm 22 so you could say I'm one of the first. No one has ever shortened my Name to Dan. It's slightly disappointing that in 20 years my name will be like Joe, John and Brian...that is, there will be three in every classroom or office...go with a unique name for your boy because when he's older he'll appreciate not being confused with anyone else." Jun. 20, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "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 not 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." Dec. 18, 2008: Report as inappropriate

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!" May. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Any body who thinks a name can make you popular is dumm...Also back when I had to go through school in the 1980s 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."

Unfortunately, the name is becoming more & more popular so I'm afraid he'll end up in class with several other Aidens or Aidans. I have also met several girls named Aiden in the last year. It's still a beautiful name though." Jun. 22, 2006: Report as inappropriate
