Zaden1990 Says:


I like how people can spew crap over the internet about people (their name etc.), but I’m willing to bet these same people wouldn’t have the balls to say these things to people in person. Pathetic.

A Zayden (spelled Zaden) born in 1990

TechnoKitten Says:


Are you serious man? I wish the name Aidan wasn't overused and had these horrible trendy variations like Caiden, Jaeden, Layden, Taiden and stuff like that. This isn't a name, it's a scrabble.

Excuse me?

Siblings: Emahleighhe (Emily), Khrysthelle (Crystal), Jhoshuahh (Joshua), K'Dyn (a poor excuse for Caden)

MonikerWanderer Says:


This name is not my style, and it is certainly a trendy made-up name, but it is definitely not the worst name ever invented. The Z initial is cool and it sounds like common Braden, Aiden, and Kayden, names that have been around for years. Yes, there is no meaning to the name, and there are many better choices, but I see nothing deserving of vitriol in this name and the people who say this name is "worse than awful" and people who use it "deserve scorn" are unreasonable.

So if you love this name, go ahead and use it. I see it as a name that fits a kid but could grow into a cool, laid-back adult. Every name was made-up at some point.

Engelbert is a perfectly good name.

KassemJ Says:


"some random, lonely person spews at children and their parents from behind a computer screen" Um, what the hell are YOU doing in front of a computer screen belittling me if you clearly have some many friends. (I'm Arab, btw)

KassemJ Says:


1. If I was Gregory, I would be more covert than that.

2. Engelbert's a funny name, maybe he saw my comment on it and decided to use it.

babymagic Says:


hmmm, what are the odds of that?

alexandramae Says:


"lowest form of crap," some random, lonely person spews at children and their parents from behind a computer screen. "truly, truly worse than awful," they say, clearly never having experienced anything outside of their white, upper middle class, suburbia household.

ziggywiggy Says:


it definitely is! 10 days ago KassemJ commented on Englebert's page that it was "still better than Zayden". Ironic that's the exact same name out of thousands of possibilities that Greg chose eh?

babymagic Says:


Well, you're likely the same person...

KassemJ Says:


You wanna see "crude", go on imdb, the users there will make you lose all faith in humanity.

KassemJ Says:


I like you.

babymagic Says:


Alright Greg, go scorn them in person then, instead of spewing faceless vitriol all over the internet. I wonder if you would be half as bold.

ziggywiggy Says:


Huh?? I can see people naming their child Hitler or something not deserving respect but Zayden? I can see how this name wouldnt be your style but how can this name be offensive enough to say something so crude?

Zelliew Says:


I have no specific objection to "Ayden names - Surely Narcissis & Cecil are worse

KassemJ Says:


But that's not as relieving...or fun.

babymagic Says:


You could have just said that it's not your taste. There are more tactful ways to express your opinion, which don't offend people out there who actually have this name or the parents that choose it

KassemJ Says:


Let me express my opinion in a different way. This name is truly, truly worse than awful. I'm not saying this to be mean or condescending, just the way I see it. This might actually be my most hated name of all time. I believe that when naming a child, you should give him/her a sophisticated name with a good meaning. For example, Stephen ('crown"), Gabriel ("Strong man of God"), Simon ("God is listening"), Peter ("Rock") and so on. Not Jayden/Zayden ("Modern invented name created in light of the -aden trend") and names like it. I don't even "hate" -aden names like most users here, I think Aiden and Caden are perfectly okay names and prefer Brendan to Brayden. That being said, I consider Jayden/Zayden/Rayden to be the lowest form of crap and feel sorry for anyone who is cursed with them.

indiefendi2 Says:


These "creative" names make me cringe cringe CRINGE. It's like these children will be 5 forever.

dscampbell77 Says:


My son's name is Zayden and no one has ever said it sounds like Satan. I feel like people are just grasping at straws, judging a name like that! Everyone he meets says they love that the name Zayden is off the beaten path, but not so far off the deep end of random made up names. Plus, my sweet and friendly blond-haired, blue-eyed toddler could not be farther from "Satan." However, I am glad that his name didn't catch the same popularity of the other Aiden names, as I picked it for its unique quality! :)

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


How is it too close to Satan? It started with a Z and and has a D not a T.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Umm.. not generally to me, but it rhymes. It is clearly different of said clearly.

Guest Says:


Zayden is pronounced as Zae-den? Or Say-den? If it's the latter, I finally understand when all of you say it sounds too close like 'Satan'

HatGirl Says:


I liked this name but now since you said it it reminds me of satan.

tintri Says:


This made up name is too close to "Satan" for my taste. Surely parents can string together a more attractive set of syllables if made up names are their cup of tea.... Clearly, I'm not a fan of this name.
