- Comments and insights on the name Caden: | Edit
I think this is a great name but I cant understand why it is so underused for girls, I think it is very girly and Cady makes a great nickname.
If my son, Caden, had been a girl we intended to name him Kadyn (pronounced the same)
- Personal experiences with the name Caden: | Edit
I like the sound. According to the "New Baby Name Survey" published 2007, "Caden is either a workaholic or ... fun-loving guy out on a beach ... a lanky strawberry blonde." I haven't met any Cadens yet. Any one else have thoughts on what image comes to mind with this name?
My Caden is very sweet and loving (even as a near teen-ager). He is an over-achiever and very competitive!!! Everything physical comes easy to him. He rolled over before he was a month old...no kidding, i have it on tape! He is quite an athlete but also very smart. He missed straight A's by 1% this last marking period, and has picked up the piano and saxophone with ease. -Amy
My Caden will be 6 tomorrow. He is a very active little boy. And he lives up to the meaning of the name "spirit of battle". From the moment he opens his eyes to moment he closes them, he is nonstop. He is absolutely lively and such a character.

- Caden in song, story & screen: | Edit
I named my son Caden 31 yrs. ago in 1988..I thought I had made it up because it wasn't in my baby names book. My Cade is a very handsome, tall and athletic man with dark hair. He's talented musically and has a generous heart.
I found out when Caden was a year old that Doug Davidson 'Paul' on the "young & restless" had named his son Caden...It became very popular in mid 2000's. Our family is of Irish decent and I thought it sounded Gaelic.
