Just wondering which of these spelling people thought were the most common. I've also seen it spelled Aden (The name of a park near where DH used to live) but I don't want to do an unusual spelling and have him having to clarify how to spell his name for the rest of his life!

I think pretty equally tbh, I would choose which spelling suits the rest of his name the best!

I've only ever seen Aiden before. Aidan looks wrong to me, and k think Aden is a port somewhere.

Aiden would get my vote.

Well as an Irish person I prefer Aodhán but presuming you're in the UK, Aidan is the closest and nicest option.

Dislike Aiden and Aden is hideous.

I'd spell it with an a, but it might depend on where you live.

Aidan, it was the original after the Irish spelling

The one I know is Aidan.
And autocorrect didn't complain...

Definitely Aidan.

Aidan, definitely

I spell it with an A at the end and much prefer it that way

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 14-Feb-16 16:18:34

Aidan definitely.

I just realised I typed the opposite of what I meant! I've taught about five Aidans but never seen Aiden. Doh! Ignore my post uptrend.

Aidan, definitely.

Aidan.

Aiden looks like a typo.

Aidan.

Aiden is just plain wrong.

mydogeatsnutstoo Sun 14-Feb-16 17:23:42

I agree with most that Aidan is the usual spelling.

mrsschu Sun 14-Feb-16 17:37:11

Aidan is the usual spelling that I know.

Aidan

Aiden was formed later (by Americans!)

AuntieStella Sun 14-Feb-16 19:37:07

Aidan, like the saint.

Seeing everyone saying Aidan on here, it frustrates me how often DS1 ends up as Aiden!
