Meaning: God has heard
Alternate spellings: Jadin, Jadan, Jadon, Jaydon, Jaiden, Jaydin, Jaiden, Jaeden, Jaidyn, Jayden, Jadyn, Jaydan
Parents love this pleasingly preppy name for boys or girls. Its raging success can be attributed to both Will Smith and Britney Spears choosing it for their babies, which is why many write this name off as a celebrity invention like Zuma or Pilot Inspektor. But Jayden has historical heft, having roots in the Hebrew name Jadon, which means “God has heard.” He heard it – but can He spell it? Jayden currently has twelve spelling variants: Jadin, Jadan, Jadon, Jaydon, Jaiden, Jaydin, Jaiden, Jaeden, Jaidyn, Jayden, Jadyn, and Jaydan.
