Jaydon Name Meaning & Origin

Jaydon

Pronunciation: JAY-dən (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.

While this is mostly a respelling of Jaden and pronounced (JAY din) I once met a couple who'd named their son Jaydon after his two grandfathers Jason and Donald and pronounced it (Jay DON).

Personal experiences with the name Jaydon: | Edit

When my cousin found out she was pregnant she knew right away that if she had a boy she would name him Jaydon spelt exactly that way (still pronounced like Jay-den)the name from which it is a variation of in general is very popular with both boys and girls; but it is an unusual spelling and usually assosiated with boys because of the masculine "don". Both his mother and father's names start with a "J" so this was kind of like a little theme. He has bright blue eyes and very blond curly hair- he definitly looks like a Jaydon.
