Aiden is the anglicized version of Aodhan, whose fiery meaning comes from Aodh, the Celtic god of sun and fire. This particular spelling of the Irish name Aidan received a big boost from the arrival of Aiden on Sex and the City, as Mr. Big's rival for Carrie’s affections. According to Social Security data, Aiden hit the top 20 in 2008, riding a wave of similar-sounding names such as Brayden, Caden, Jaden and Kaden. Variants Ayden and Aden are not as popular.
