    Aiden, Alden, or Ashton?

    DH and I both love Aiden, but it is so uber popular that we're not really sure we want to go with it.
    I like Alden as an alternative...close to Aiden, but different enough and not popular.
    DH likes Ashton. I'm ok with that, but Asher, etc. are also getting popular and I can't stand Ashton Kutcher.
    Middle name will be Elliott. Thoughts?

    I like Aidan (though only this spelling, not Aiden).

    Alden is okay but I wonder how many times a day it would be misread as Aiden, looking at it. Like, I like Iola, but 9/10 people think I wrote "Lola" with a lower-case L.

    Are August or Alan options?

    If you both truly love Aiden, then I would just use it. In certain name situations the reason they become so popular are because they are great names. I agree with stripedsocks on the possibility of Alden being missread as Aiden. I'm not sure on the 2013 rankings, but Asher only hit #108 in 2012. Not extremely popular in my opinion. Ashton is going down in rankings.

    Are there any other names on your list? What about Hayden?

    Two tree names for your consideration: Alder and Linden.
    I also like Eamon, which feels older/more authentic than Aiden.
