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.
