You might think Adan is Aidan without the “i,” but it’s actually the Spanish way of saying Adam, the first man God created. The name is taken from the Hebrew word “adamah,” meaning “earth” or “fire.” Adan sounds exotic, especially since it’s pronounced “ah-DHAHN,” which takes it to a whole other sophisticated level. As the number of Spanish-Americans grew, so did Adan’s popularity. It's used only moderately now, so consider it if you want a name that's far from the trending crowd.
