Caiden is a boy's name with multiple origins and meanings. Just like Cayden, Kaden, and a half dozen others, this is a spelling variation of the original Caden. Caiden derives from the Gaelic surname Mac Cadáin and means "son of Cadáin" or "battle," teaching baby to fiercely stand up for what they believe in and who they are. It could also possibly be connected to the Old English name Cade, which has a definition of "round." Additionally, Caiden is a respelling of the Arabic name Kadin, meaning "companion" or "friend," which is ideal for your newest little BFF. What a well-rounded name!
