Jayden

The name is possibly derived from the biblical variant "Jadon." Jadon the Meronothite appears in Nehemiah 3:7. However, variant spellings usually become popular in the wake of the popularity of an orthodox version, and in this case the converse is true - Jadon became popular only in the wake of the popularity of Jayden, suggesting that it is not the source.
