Cayden: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Cayden

Cayden

Pronunciation: KAY-din (key)

You can rustle up an Irish origin for Caden, but this name's popularity is about pure sound. You simply cannot get a more fashionable set of phonemes, and the nickname Cade is a winner too. But an entire classroom of rhyming boys is a real risk here. Caden, meet Hayden, Aidan, Jadon, and Braeden.... Each name has multiple spellings in the top 1000 list.

Comments and insights on the name Cayden: | Edit

We named our first son Cayden. I liked it at first, but now that he's growing up I can't help but obsess over how boyish it sounds. Picturing him, say in his 50's, with the name Cayden...it's just not manly sounding. That, and the fact that there are so many Haydens, Braydens, and Aidans in his nursery classes. The rhyming gets annoying.

Personal experiences with the name Cayden: | Edit

My new grandson is Cayden. It is a very popular name and I think there will be a few others with the same name in his class as he grows up. Too trendy for my liking.
