Gender: M Meaning of Eden: "place of pleasure, delight" Origin of Eden: Hebrew Eden's Popularity in 2016: #521

This Biblical name was rising dramatically -- nearly 100 places in 2015! -- for boys, but dropped a bit in 2016 to Number 521, and at the same time has been softening a tiny bit for girls. Still, the raw numbers put it still on the girls' side: In 2016, Eden was given as a name to more than 2000 girls versus about 500 boys. A delightful unisex choice.
