Jayden Name Meaning & Origin

Jayden

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 Jayden: | Edit

i named my wee boy Jayden, but we pronounce it Jad-in its the same name isnt it jus different pronouciation.

I don't see everyone's problem with this name. It's cute and has a nice ring to it. One of my favorite gender-neutral names.

My name is Jayden- although, I am a girl.

I first heard the name 12 Feb 1994 (14 months before I met my husband) and being the Trekkie that I am I knew as soon as I heard the young girl give Data the name, Jayden, I would name my son that. I grabbed my journal and wrote it down with a gazillion middle names but settled on Erik, 1. it is my baby brother's middle name 2. It is a good strong Viking name and I lived in Norway for a year. It turned out that my husband and I tried for 6 years to have a baby so the meaning "God has heard" means a lot as we were really praying for him to come to us. He had multiple complications after an emergency c-section birth and spent 6 days in the NICU before he could come home. I had never heard the name before but when he started early intervention (He has autism) and then later kindergarten I heard the name a few more times for both genders and other races. I knew I had picked well. I figured if he hated it he could have people call him Jay, but he loves his name and will not let anyone call him Jay. He will be 17 in 2018. He was born 2 weeks before 9/11 on his father's birthday, by 2 minutes to midnight!!
