Etymology & Historical Origin - Jayden

The name Jayden is a modern American name that was essentially invented sometime in the 1990’s. As such, there is no specific etymological meaning; in fact, it’s the only name on the U.S. Top 100 list without meaning. Jayden is what we call a “name-coinage”; it was probably invented off the popular “Jay” prefix (which is a short form for any given name starting with the letter J) combined with the ϋber-trendy “-den” suffix (think Aiden, Braden, Hayden and Kaden). Hip, fashionable and trendy, Jayden is a name for the modern, non-traditional parent. It’s for those who prefer sound over substance (since Jayden pretty much means…well, nothing).

Popularity of the Name Jayden

Jayden did not show up on the charts in the United States as a popular baby boy’s name until 1994, when about 150 babies received this newly invented name (today about 25,000 baby boys get some form of this name on an annual basis). As we all know, Jayden gained in popularity very rapidly and by the turn of the 21st century, the name was securely in the Top 100. At the end of the last decade, Jayden hit the Top 10. Given its short existence on the charts, coupled by its quick ascent in popularity, we’d definitely put Jayden in the “trendy” category, as in crazy, ridiculous trendy – in fact, he’s the poster-boy! Technically speaking, Jayden is considered gender-neutral, although it’s far more popular for baby boys than for baby girls (11x more popular). The name debuted on the female charts in 1998, but it’s never gotten higher than position #172. Jayden’s runaway success is furthermore evidenced by the absurd amounts of spelling variations which have popped up over the past several years (Jaden, Jadyn, Jaeden, Jaiden, Jaydon, blah, blah, blah).
