Meaning:Thankful; God will judge
Jayden is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origins, meaning “thankful” and “God will judge.” While the name sports age-old biblical ties, Jayden is also considered a stylish and contemporary choice. In the Hebrew Scriptures, Jadon appeared as a figure that helped rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Today, the name’s combination of “Jay” with its -den suffix places it in close quarters with other modern darlings like Aiden, Hayden, Brayden, and Cayden. The name has also been a popular choice in Hollywood, as celebrity parents Britney Spears and Will and Jada Smith chose the name for their little ones.
