Meaning:round or lumpish
Since Caden's meaning isn’t too appealing (“round" or "lumpish”), think of the name itself as attractive. A shorter derivation of Mac Cadáin, a Gaelic surname meaning “son of Cadáin,” this contemporary name found popularity in the 1990s. As with many other recently invented names, Caden has many offshoots, including Cayden, Caiden, Kaeden, Kayden and Kaden. All the names are also part of a trend involving names with the “aden” suffix sound, as in Jaden and Aiden.
