Both boys and girls) we actually pronounce the name a bit differnetly, I believe. We say ed-en; we pronounce the first "e" the same way as the "e" in "elephant".

  • "With all due respect, everyone who has posted that this Eden is mostly a "feminine" name and that they like it better for a girl than a boy is TERRIBLY AND ABSOLUTELY WRONG. Whoever has named a girl Eden or themselves being female are named EDEN MUST realize that they are using the name contrary to the proper gender which it is intended for in Hebrew. I am appalled to see so many comment they associate this name more with a girl. Those people are oblivious and in total ignorance. Had they done your due diligence you would know that: #1- EDEN is a hebrew name taken from the scriptures. #2 Look therefore how it is used in the Hebrew scriptures: 1. A region in which a gardenlike park was planted as the original home of the first human pair. 2. One of the LEVITES (Note it's referring to a M-A-L-E) who responded to King Hezekiah?s call for reform; 2Chronicles 29:12; 31:14, 15. 2. A place listed along with Haran and Canneh as a main trading center with Tyre.(Eze 27:23, 24) Regardless of whether or not you believe in the Bible, referring to where the name originates and HOW it is used should help dispel the ignorant idea that it is mainly a GIRLS name. he name Eden occurs three times in the Bible. The first and most famous Eden is the location of the paradisiac garden in which Adam and Eve lived their pre-fall existence (Genesis 2:8). The garden of Eden is marked by four rivers: Pishon, Gihon, Haddakel and Parat (Genesis 2:13-14). The second Eden is either a person or a region probably somewhere in Mesopotamia. Isaiah speaks of 'sons of Eden who were in Telassar' (37:12). Sometimes the word "son" is used for inhabitants (sons of Jerusalem = inhabitants of Jerusalem) but since Telassar is already a location, Eden is probably their human ancestor. The third Eden is a Levite in the days of king Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:12)" Oct. 29, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "Like many of the Edens' above, I really disliked this name as a child. I even asked my mom if I could change it to Edith, as that's everyone thought it was anyway.

I think Eden is the most beautiful name to own. I'm delighted to hear the countless comments on it's beauty and uniqueness. I make this names what it is, and I'm very lucky to have it."

  • "My son's name is Eden. Actually, he was named after his maternal grandmother's maiden name, Edun, but that didn't sound as good to us so we tweaked it. I just checked this website. Since 1880 a total of 229 boys in the US have been named Eden, and 13,118 girls. But the big use of the name picked up only in the last few decades. I wonder why, exactly, people think "Eden" is a feminine name. It didn't sound feminine to me when we picked it. As I recall, there were two people in the Garden of Eden, one of each gender. Garden, growth and fertility may all bias people to thinking this is a girl's name only. I hope it can be both, and my son will not be teased when he gets older."

  • "My name is Eden and I'm male in my teens, not once have any of my friends questioned my name about it being a girls name and you can tell just from the way it is pronounced that it is a male name. It sounds like aiden which everyone mistakes my name as, i find it hard to believe that people find it to be a more "female" name. It is no doubt a male name, just Aden replaced with an 'E'."

  • "Well - my Eden was also born on Feb 26 and then I see another Feb 19 Eden. I think it is the ultimate Pisces name for a true Eden. I don't want the name to get to popular - my son is Archer and that doesn't look like it is on the rise too much. Perfect names that suit them. Now got to find the right "r" name for a friend."

  • "My 4 year old is Eden and the name suits her perfectly. I couldn't be happier that I chose to take a risk and name her a name that others gave me flack for when I was thinking about it while pregnant. It's a gorgeous name, I see nothing wrong with it at all - it connotes beauty and sounds pretty and unique. Too many Avas, Gabriellas, Katelyns -- Eden stands alone! Go for it if you are thinking of it for your child!" Nov. 30, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I noticed on the chart that in the US since 1985 over 11,000 girls had been named Eden but no boys had been. I named my son Eden. He was born on June 16 2005 here in Australia. I came across the name when I was reading about an Australian movie called The Proposition and one of the male characters was called Eden. However, lately I've been a bit worried that the name might be a bit too effeminate for a boy and that he might be embarrassed to introduce himself to other boys when he's in his teens. I guess he could shorten it to Ed if he felt the need to butch it up a bit. Anyhow I like the name but I don't how much my son will like it as he grows up." Feb. 27, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name Eden and Im glad to see that others appreciate it also! I also get very cold responses when I mention the name Eden for my future Daughter's name. But I'm very much an individualist and I know that name will suit her just fine. I'm going with Eden and Jolie for her middle name. Jolie meaning beauty in french! I can hardly wait :)" Jun. 12, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've had mixed feelings about my name my whole life...Didn't mind it as a child (didn't know it wasn't normal), went back and forth through school, and now, as an adult, don't mind it at all. Usually I get very positive comments about it when people read it on a credit card or drivers' license--most comment that it's beautiful. But I frequently have to clarify to people when introduced--they often mistake it for Edith, Eva, or even Erin. And I can't even begin to count how many times I've heard, "Oh, like the garden?" and "So where's Adam?" Clever, eh?" Jan. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate
