Etymology & Historical Origin - Jadon

While we are all familiar with the ϋber-trendy Jayden names and all of his insufferable respellings, Jadon is actually a bonafide ancient name derived from the Bible. Most people are unaware of Jadon’s biblical beginnings because he appears as only a minor character in the Old Testament. In the Book of Nehemiah 3:7, Jadon is mentioned briefly as one of the builders of the wall of Jerusalem. His name is said to come from Hebrew (Yadon) meaning either “thankful” or “he will judge” (although the etymology is not universally confirmed). Despite Jadon’s tiny place in the Bible, the name’s usage is much more tied to the ultra-popularity of the Jayden type names. At least this one has a potential ancient etymology rather than being simply a modern American invention. It could be argued that Jadon is the truest of all the spellings (Hebrew pronunciation yah-DON).

Popularity of the Name Jadon

Since Jadon only first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1998, we’re pretty certain that his name is tied more to the Jayden trend than the Biblical source. The spelling of Jadon reached moderate levels of usage, but has been trending backwards in more recent years. A lot of Americans are tiring of the Aiden, Brayden, Jayden and Kaden type masculine names due to overuse. Jadon is sure to be a casualty of this backlash. We think Jayden is getting ready to jump the shark despite the fact that he’s the 4th most popular boy’s name in America right now (2011 data). Maternity wards and kindergarten classes runneth over with Jaydens, Jadens, Jaidens, Jaydyns and Jaydins of both genders. When will the madness stop?

    Victory on the Walls: A Story of Nehemiah (Frieda Clark Hyman) - Jadon makes an appearance in this Biblical story. Thirteen-year-old Bani, though born in Jerusalem, has lived from infancy with his uncle in beautiful Susa, the city of the Persian King Artaxerxes. Now, his Uncle Nehemiah wants to leave his position of high honor as Cupbearer to the King to return to Jerusalem, a city in ruins and beset by every kind of trouble! Nehemiah's request of the king, permission to return to help his own people, could so easily in an empire riddled with political intrigue be misconstrued as treasonous scheming. Bani himself is given an unexpected part to play, the outcome of which is to forever change his life. Seen through the eyes of Bani, this novel dramatizes a turning-point of history, in 445 BC, when through confrontation and daring risks Judaism was re-established in the Promised Land, and purified for her unfolding mission. Recommended for ages 10-14.
