"My last name is Kadin (American dialect), and I believe it has to do with my Jewish heritage on my father's side. Just like any American, I can butcher the Arabic language and use the Arabic dialect's meaning for the American saying.

"This is a name from Alaska. Michael Maxomovitch Kadin was a cartographer and ships pilot educated in Sitka and St. Petersburg. There is Kadin Island near Wrangell and the Stikine, Kadin Lake, Kadin Vents etc in Alaska...and being Alaskan that is why I named my son this. Plus, being a map collector the cartographer part means something to me, being from Sitka, that means something to me and my husband use to work on boats in areas MM Kadin charted and piloted through meant something to him. There are businesses and buildings called Kadin I know in southeast Alaska.
I had never known or heard of anyone using the name for a child before. But now, I hear it all the time down here in the lower 48...though not spelled the same so clearly not named for the same person or reasons.
Part of me feels bad about this because his name is more common than I thought. I didn't think to look up the name using different spellings...since we finally thought about using the name within 24 hours of his birth." May. 5, 2008:

""Kadin" means 'woman' in Turkish. That alone makes this a rather poor name for a male boy.
Nevertheless, this name likely comes from Arabic." Oct. 13, 2009:

"Kadin is my son's name. He was born in 1986. I run across this name once in awhile now but not then. I read that is was an Arabic name although we gave it an American pronunciation. I read that it meant "compassionate" and that is why I chose it. I think it is a strong name and he always gets nice compliments about it. Several people in our town have used the name since he was born. He was involved in lots of sports, music and academics when he was in middle school and high school so his name was in the paper a lot and we believe that prompted lots of new moms to use the name." Feb. 24, 2010:
"I named my son Kadin after finding it in a baby boy name book for 2000...I liked the meaning it gave "friend to all" and that is exactly what my son is!" Feb. 5, 2010:
"I was born in 1986 and was named Kadin, officially making me one of the very first in America with that name by like 10 years! I have only heard of one other Kadin, different variation of spelling, and he was 15 years younger than me. I love having a unique name and definitely think Kadin sounds cool. I do like the spelling Caden as well. But since my parents derived the name from Adin (Uncle), my name has no meaning. I often get from other people that Kadin is the coolest name they have ever heard. And it is!" Oct. 3, 2009:
"I'm 6 months pregnant and my husband I was looking for a real different name for our son.... At first we made up a name kalaivion, but after awhile we thought it sound too getto (LOL)...
