Whether you have ancestral roots in Ireland or something about Gaelic names simply sparks your interest, you will want to check out this gem! Aedan is a gender-neutral given name of Irish origin. It means "little fire," which is a cute coincidence seeing as your little one will light a flame of unconditional, lifelong love in your heart. Commonly spelled as Aidan, this version is a nice tribute to the ancient Gaelic originals Aodhán and Áedán, pronounced "Ay-dawn." The traditional feminine diminutive is Aideen, but Aedan works as a girl's name. It might just be the perfect way to ignite a fresh and modern take on this fiery name, too!
