History of National Jaden Day

Jaden is a masculine and feminine name used in communities where the primary language is English. This name doesn’t have a meaning, as it was made up as a variation of names that end with ‘den,’ such as Aiden and Hayden. However, some consider it to be a variation of the biblical name Jadon, which means ‘thankful’ and, in some contexts, can mean ‘he will judge.’ You’ll find Jaden’s across countries like the United States, Canada, England, and France.

Whenever people hear the name Jaden, they think of a modern and youthful person. They also think of this name as being relatively informal and even wholesome.
