He honestly doesn't know anything about the Aiden spinoffs trend.
Oh man, this one is one of those I really, really, ?really dislike.
1) Everyone keeps spelling it various ways.
2) He will be one of several in his grade/class.
3) It sounds made up.
4) It'll rhyme with his classmate's names! ?
5) Doesn't age well. (Yeah, I get some people think it will because it's popular. This is just my opinion ;) ?
6) Tell him it's too popular !
Maybe some of those will work...lol. :-P?
Show him jebuell's REAL baby list!
Long A-den boy names have swamped the baby name market. It will be like a bad Twilight Zone episode, where he keeps thinking someone is whispering his name, and he turns around, and no one is even looking at him.
It's a proven theory that names that sound "good" to us when our baby is born, sound good because they are part of phonemic trends. That is why we have the -den names and all the Eva/Bella/Emma names right now. Those sounds are trendy. That is also why I told another Bumpy that some people will dislike her choice of Austin, because it was part of an earlier trend, which now sounds "dated" to our ears.?
We think we are being unique by choosing the new trend, until our LO gets to school and has 5 other kids in their class with the same name.?
Oh, I forgot another reason! lol.
The mn is set on Brady, right? Another good reason is that Caden Brady is a lot of the same "a" sound. Doesn't really flow.?
Mrs.Carlybella:not to mention- it will probably be a girl's name in about 2-3 years :)
Oh don't worry, I recently just met a beautiful little 3 year old girl.. named Kayden. Very disappointing ;)
tct1219:ooh i thought of one, just tell him kids will call him gay-den. i seriously doubt they would but that should be enough to make him think twice.
LOL! Great ideas, everyone! I think the girl name thing will do the trick. I didn't know there were so many girl Cadens! I'll use "Gayden" as the final punch.
