Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaiden

Kaiden is yet 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. The name may have also been 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. Kaiden came along shortly thereafter as another spelling variation.

Popularity of the Name Kaiden

The name Kaiden first appeared on the American popularity charts in the year 2000. This newly made-up variation of the “Caden” class of names shows up about 20 years after the original version (Caden). Kaiden is currently the fifth most popular form of the name. Kaden is the most popular spelling of the name today, followed by Caden, Kayden, Cayden and then Kaiden. Kaiden showed remarkable growth quickly after entering the charts, but this popularity appears to be slowing. Perhaps the slower growth has to do with all of the competition out there (see all the variations to the right). The scores of spelling variations are taking the name further away from its Gaelic roots. No matter; for most American parents the attraction to these names has more to do with trendiness than family tradition.
