Characteristics of Kamden
Etymology & Historical Origin - Kamden
Kamden is the Americanized respelling of Camden (American parents love to swap in a K where there’s traditionally a C). Camden is the transferred use of an English surname which was derived from a place name. The original settlement, Campedene, was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is located in Gloucestershire, England. The name comes from the Olde English word “campa-denu” from the Latin “campus” (‘camp, enclosure’) and “denu” (‘valley’). Therefore, the location signified a valley with camp enclosures. The forename Camden is a modern development following the popular trend of using last names as given names. Camden and Kamden are both distinct to the United States compared to other English-speaking countries.
Popularity of the Name Kamden
Kamden first appeared on the boy’s chart in 2004 and it’s been growing in usage every subsequent year so far. The so far success of Kamden is owed to Camden, a spelling used with greater frequency. In fact, Camden is a Top 200 favorite boy’s name in America and looks to be pushing toward a Top 100 spot. Kamden on the other hand is much less commonly used. Both names are pronounced exactly the same way, so this particular spelling is reserved for parents who like “K” names over “C”. Kamden reminds us of Kade, Kaden, Kane, Kason, etc. These are very non-traditional choices and therefore have a very modern American sensibility. Perhaps Camden/Kamden are good choices for sons of parents who like to camp or who met while camping.
