Origin:Scottish
Popularity:280
Meaning:winding valley
Camden, like many other Anglo names, has long been used for both places and people named after those places. While it might be more famous for the New Jersey city (and the birthplace of the Campbell Soup Company) or the hip neighborhood in London, Camden originally gained its title from a winding valley in Scotland and comes with its own twists and turns. It makes a pretty cool, two-syllable alternative to the similarly stylish unisex name Cameron. The addition of the M gives it much more weight and authority than its cousin Kaden.
