What do you think about the name Alden?
It's been in the top 1000 since 1880 (never dropped out), but has never risen above like #400, so it's been around forever but has never been common. It means "old friend" which is a nice meaning. I like the sound of it pretty well, though I am kinda worried about how similar in sound it is to Aiden. I just discovered it recently and am reflecting on whether or not to put it on the list of back-up possibilities. What are your thoughts on it?
