Ugh...you wouldn't believe how difficult this trend makes my job as a substitute teacher sometimes. Everyone says, "oh, don't name him/her (top 10 name) because it's too popular - she won't be the only one in her class!" But, honestly, I rarely encounter 2 Jacobs or 2 Sophias in a class, but I often have more than one kid with an -ayden name. And they're so hard to remember because they're made up! I'm constantly calling them by some similar-sounding incorrect name. I'd rather have 2 Jacobs, at least I'll remember what to call them. The ridiculous thing is all these parents think they're being unique.
I actually liked Aidan the first time I heard it. It's still way better than all of its many imitators!Mommy to...Maura Lucille and "Baby Patrick" due April 8th!
If we have another...

Because of their similarities to Aidan, which is legit (or at least some spelling of it is), Hayden and Jayden (etc.) are nothing but masculine to me.
I wonder what the total tally would be if you included all of the spellings outside the top 1,000! -aden names are a crazy trend. Even though I sort of like Aidan, I'd never use it because of the trend.Current favorites:
