  • "I like this name, although not so much with any other spelling (unless your culture spells it differently). This spelling looks the most "classic" and professional. I actually largely prefer it as a girl's name, although it's a nice unisex name for either gender. I think this name will become more common and has not reached its peak." Mar. 5, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Hayden, and I was born in '93. I've never had a class with anybody who has my name. I was named after my landlords, who's last name was Hayden. I absolutely love my name and while many people mispell it (c'mon, really?), it works with pretty much anything. But I've met four other people with my name since birth, and they're all under five." Nov. 3, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My youngest son's name is Hayden. People mistaken him for a Kaiden or an Aiden, but my 5 year old son, quickly corrects them. :) I love the name!" Oct. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Son was born in 1994. Used Hayden as we needed and "H" name.. We love it.. He loves it too. Great masculine name.. even though there are some Hayden girls (not sure what those parents were thinking) Great name." Sep. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "We have a Haydon Oscar and we compliments on his name all the time! Great name, really great kid!" Feb. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son was born in 1990 and is named Hayden. I still love his name. BTW I don't like seeing this name used as a girl name. Anyone else?" Aug. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am an 11 yr old boy named Heyden. I know one other Heyden and he spells his differently. I have never been in a class with anybody that shares my name. I love my name, because it's unique. People spell it wrong a lot - but it doesn't really bother me. DON"T EVER CHANGE YOUR NAME CUZ OUR NAME ROCKS!" Jul. 6, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son Hayden in 1993, it wasn't common at all back then and still isn't very common where we live now. We named him after Hayden road, a street in Scottsdale Arizona where I grew up living near most of my life. Our son likes his name alot, so do we!" May. 7, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am thinking of naming my baby this if it is a boy. It is my husband's Mother's Madien name. I really like it. Very different and unique." Mar. 14, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Great name. Our son is named after the Australian cricketer of the same surname." Feb. 21, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Its the best spelled as Heydon. I love it spelled like that! I like who this name represents!" Feb. 15, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Hayden, and I love the name. It is unique which is great. Sometimes people don't know how to pronouce it, or if you say it too fast it's hard to understand, but generally the name is hard to forget. The only down side is trying to find a fake license plate with my name on it, or a mug for that matter, ... or anything that can't be specially ordered. Just to address other peoples comments, the correct pronouciation of the name is H-ay-den. Also, there is no way my name is trendy because in my 30,000 person town, theres like one Hayden (me...), and including the town next to mine, I only know of one other Hayden (that is two Hayden's out of like roughly 70,000 people). I'd have to say chris, or eric, or ryan, or bill, or bob, or nick are trendier names than Hayden. What can I say, I love being of the if not the only hayden where ever I go (makes me feel special...)." Jan. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

I found it in a baby book. We have been able to find it pre-printed on a few souvenirs at the beach much to our surprise." Mar. 5, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name, it isn't very popular which makes me like it even more. What is worse than having the same name as 3 other people in your class for instance, it can get confusing." Nov. 29, 2005: Report as inappropriate
