Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaden
Kaden is another American spelling variation of the first name Caden which was derived from a Gaelic surname, Mac Cadáin (meaning son of Cadáin). The Gaelic word “cadáin” possibly means ‘battler’ but the etymology is up for debate. It’s also thought the name is derived from Adam, the first man, which would give the meaning ‘ground, earth.’ The MacCadáin clan was responsible for maintaining and managing the church land in their Scottish localities, a position they held from late medieval times into the early modern era (which would lend the name nicely toward Adam’s meaning). Caden is a very modern given name, originating only this century, and distinct to the United States. Kaden came along shortly thereafter as another spelling variation.
Popularity of the Name Kaden
Kaden enters the American popularity charts for the first time in the history of name-tracking in 1993, one year after Caden. Both names jump up the graphs pretty quickly, shadowing each other closely, practically neck-and-neck, for the past nearly 20 years. The more phonetic spelling Kaden seems to be ahead right now, although both variations are on the decline in recent years. Given all the creative spelling variations of this name (Kadin, Kadyn, Kaeden, Kaiden, Caiden, Cade and Kade) perhaps American parents are finally tiring of it. The overuse of popular names such as Kaden (Aiden, Jayden, Hayden, Brayden) is starting to backfire as kindergarten teachers across America rebel (how many spellings do you expect them to keep track of, after all?). Kaden is a solid name, but it lacks pizzazz.
