Layken is a gender-neutral name that has found its footing in America, whose roots span deep throughout the rest of the globe. American author Colleen Hoover coined Layken for her romance-infused novel, Slammed. Thought to be a blend of Arabic Layla and Irish Kennedy, Layken means “night” and “helmet-headed.” Also considered a form of the Latin-inspired Welsh surname Laken, Layken adopts the meaning “lake” from the English word, or “from Laurentum” from Lawrence.
