Aidan

fire
ORIGIN: Gaelic
POPULARITY: 342
“Sex and the City” introduced many people to the name Aidan through Carrie Bradshaw’s guy. The name reached its peak of popularity around 2013. It comes from “aed,” the Gaelic word for fire (appropriately enough, the character Aidan Shaw was smokin' hot!), Aidan is a saint’s name too; the most well known was Saint Aidan of Iona, who helped bring Christianity to the Saxons. Similar-sounding names are Hayden, Braden and Jayden, which work for girls too. Ireland prefers Aidan, but Aiden is tops in the US.
