Meaning:Dark valley
Embrace baby’s dark side and opt for the name Colden. A boy’s name of English origin, Colden is a habitational name that derives from the Old English word cald, meaning “cold,” or col, meaning “charcoal,” and denu, meaning “valley.” As such, the definition for this distinctive option is “dark valley.” While this may evoke images of the macabre or spooky—the valley of the shadow of death, and all that—baby’s warmth and personality will dispel any notions that a name’s definition needs to be anything more than something rather cool to learn! We can also take a shot in the dark and say that with a name like this, baby Colden is certain to be a bright spark in any setting!
