Etymology & Historical Origin - Adan
Adán is the Spanish equivalent of Adam. The name Adam hardly needs an introduction. In the Bible, it’s the name of the first man God created (Genesis 2). Adam was formed out of “the dust from the ground” and brought to life when God breathed His spirit into him. The Hebrew word “adamah” means ground (or earth), fittingly since it was the essential ingredient of God’s creation. Adam is also the generic term for “Man” as told in Genesis 5:2.
Popularity of the Name Adan
Adán appeared on the U.S. male naming charts sporadically in the 1930s, 40s and 50s but never managed to really stick to the charts. Finally, the name stuck in the 1960s (just as the Spanish-speaking population in America began its meteoric growth in numbers). The name slowly climbed to levels of low-moderate usage and then seemed to get a big bump up the charts so far in this new 21st century. Weird, we thought. Then it occurred to us. Perhaps some American parents may be misspelling the popular boy’s name Aidan as “Adan”. We hope not since that might look a little stupid! Adán is a name about the ‘earth, ground’ and not about ‘little fire’ (which is the meaning of Aidan). Hopefully people will figure that out. Adán is a cool name. It’s one of the more offbeat, unfamiliar Spanish names making it an original choice.
