  • [name_m]Nate[/name_m]

In my experience as a secondary teacher, most of the [name_u]Jayden[/name_u]’s/Braydens/Kaidons that I’ve met have been complete and utter d-bags.

I haven’t yet been able to figure out why! Are they doomed to be that way when they’re given these names? :woman_shrugging:t2: [name_f]Do[/name_f] these names make kids act like this ?? :woman_shrugging:t2:

I’m in NZ btw for reference.


From my experience, no offense to anyone with these names, you could be a lovely person.

[name_m]Chet[/name_m] / [name_m]Chad[/name_m]
[name_m]Derek[/name_m] / [name_m]Derick[/name_m]

Hope that helps)


So the jerks in my life as a teen were…

@sarahjane1 Maybe it’s a connection between the parents who are willing to give their children aiden/ayden names and the way they raise their children. More of a nurture then a nature.

I think I can recall being tormented by a [name_u]Brayden[/name_u] in my youth. I’m definitely considering it.

Not to repeat it again but [name_m]Chad[/name_m] is a no-brainer (maybe too on the nose) so here’s a few others from my current hs and past school experience:

  • Dylan/Dillon
  • initial names like DJ, TJ, etc. (Bonus points if their real name is super stuck up)
  • Logan
  • Jacob
  • Richard
  • Toby
  • Hayden
  • Caidyn/Cayden
  • Robert/Bobby
  • Joseph/Joey
  • Michael
  • Ryan
  • Ty/Tyler

There’s definitely more but I can’t think of them atm

@the_common_fool [name_m]Chad[/name_m] is a bit on the nose, though I’m still considering it. Also, thanks for the suggestion of TJ! I like that one (or AJ). [name_u]Tyler[/name_u] [name_u]Jaden[/name_u] or [name_u]Aiden[/name_u] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m], perhaps?

@Rhettagain I’m considering [name_u]Ricky[/name_u]


Ethan. Definitely [name_m]Ethan[/name_m]. I also second the recommendation of [name_u]Dillon[/name_u].
