  • "Jaden is a variant of the name "Jadon," which in Hebrew means, "He will judge." The 'He,' of course, being G-D. It can also mean "grateful," or, "thankful."" Dec. 10, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "As a pregnant 17 year old 42 years ago, I wanted a name with originality. A strong name for my unborn son. I decided to play around with wooden blocks that had letters of the alphabet painted on the sides. This is how I arrived at the wonderful name, Jaden. In South Africa at that time, the name Jaden was unheard of. So I felt I had given my son a very special name. He was a very special son. Yes, was. My beloved son Jaden, was cruelly taken from us suddenly at age 32. He loved his name and I have no regrets giving him the name Jaden. Its as beautiful as he was."

  • "In 1974 my wife and I named our first born son Jaden Rangi, Rangi being sky and up until then we had not heard of anyone called Jaden. We thought we were the only ones but mind you we never had computas, cell phones and really tv was quite a rarity. The world was a much bigger place unlike now. We loved his name then and still do now. His name is now through our families and friends as nieces nephews and cousins. What more can you ask of love." Jan. 2, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My 9 yr old sons name is jaden...good choice for anyone" Jan. 24, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am 7 mnths pregnant and we decided on the name Jaden when we first got together over 15 yrs ago, because my husband's name is James and mine is Denise: JA from James + DEN from Denise = JADEN. That is the meaning of the name for us. Girl or boy, it's what we love and regardless if it has become popular or not, or what biblical background it may or may not have derived from, we're sticking with it. If we're to set examples for our little ones, why not start with not giving in to peer pressure and simply sticking to your convictions. If it's what you want, don't let anyone's comments stand in your way. :o)" May. 17, 2012: Report as inappropriate
