National Jayden Day – November 1, 2022

National Jayden Day falls on November 1 to celebrate and appreciate all the Jaydens all over the world. The name Jayden is both masculine and feminine, which was not well known until the 1990s since it is said to be of modern invention — a combination of the ‘jay’ sound and the ‘-den’ suffix. Although it’s a unisex name, Jayden is most commonly used on males. There are alternative spellings of the name Jayden, such as Jadon, Jaden, Jaeden, Jaedin, and Jaidan. In 2011, the popularity of Jayden peaked at number four in the United States.

History of National Jayden Day

National Jayden Day takes place on November 1, and the date was chosen after the birthdate of one of the notable Jaydens, Jayden Bartels.

Since she was eight, Bartels has been taking ballet, hip hop, jazz, musical theater, songwriting, and acting classes.

Although the name is most commonly used on males, Jayden is both a male and female name, which means ‘thankful.’ It is derived from Jadon, the name of a Biblical personage.
