I’ve been in love with the name [name]Hayden[/name] since highschool; it’s one of the few names that has stuck with me all these years. Now with all the popularity of these type of “ayden” names, I’m feeling a little torn. I also read that it is rising in popularity for girls, and I wouldn’t want our son resenting us for that!
I also happened upon [name]Pamela[/name]'s article in the [name]Daily[/name] Best re: “Elite Names” and the first comment is below:
"Ask any teacher and they can tell a lot about a child’s family just by the child’s name. The worst are contrived names, followed by copying the names of celebrity children’s. If you or your loved ones have a baby on the way it is better to stick with traditional names; yes, [name]Susan[/name] or [name]John[/name], would be far less burdensome than [name]Peyton[/name], or [name]Jaden[/name], [name]Hayden[/name], [name]Cayden[/name]. "
Really? Would [name]Hayden[/name] be burdensome? Obviously, I’m not basing this choice on internet comments, but I’d like to get some impressions from all of you out there.
Our first girl is [name]Elizabeth[/name]. If we had another, she will be [name]Hannah[/name].
My husband and I agreed that our first boy will be [name]Noah[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]… Yes, [name]Noah[/name] is popular as well, but we love it too much to part with that one!
Second boy would be [name]Hayden[/name]. We also like [name]Asher[/name] and [name]Harper[/name], but we aren’t ready to part with [name]Hayden[/name].
So, since this is the “high-quality, intelligent source for stylish names,” what do you think?
