Jaiden Name Meaning & Origin

Jaiden

Pronunciation: JAY-din (key)

There is a minor Jadon in the Old Testament, but this is no biblical revival. Cross Jacob with Aidan, and voila: the sound of the times. The name's popularity shot up starting in 1998, when celebrity parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett chose this male twist on mom's name.

Comments and insights on the name Jaiden: | Edit

I am named Jaiden and i am not 35 years od i am 9. I was like a miracle to my parents. I was born on July 4th independance day. I was born at somewhere around 9:00. I was very tiny just a little bit bigger that my puppy when she was born which was a couple months ago. I think my name is perfect and that it is smart,sexy,young,friendly,creative,strong, and sophisticated because i am all of those. I am in 4th grade. And if you want to name your baby after me then you'll see how much the miracle is.

Personal experiences with the name Jaiden: | Edit

My younger son was born in 2002 and his name is Jaiden. I have a J name, my parents had J names and my husband had a J name. So inevitably we named our kids J names. Our first son has a common name after a relative and I wanted something more unique for our second son. I really liked the name Aidan but changed the initial spelling from Jaidan to Jaiden. At the time I had no idea Will Smith's son's name was Jaden and even at my doctor's office everyone was telling me what a unique name I chose and asking me how I came up with it. Little did I know once my son started school he would be in classes with tons of kids with his name. In his kindergarten class alone there were 3 others with his name, boys and girls, with various spellings.
