A modern variation of Aidan, Eiden is a boy's name of Gaelic origin, meaning "little and fiery." Stemming from Aodhán_, the name is born from the ancient Celtic god of the sun and fire, Aodh (or Aed). The name is attributed to many key figures in Irish mythology, including the eldest son in the renowned legend, _The Children of Lir. Across Aodh's interpretations lies a treasure trove of tales featuring victorious rulers, kindly saints, and lamenting swans. Backed by supernatural figures and a renowned high king, little Eiden will find no shortage of inspiration to ignite a passion for a fulfilled life.
