Hello Mumsnetters,

Our little boy arrived yesterday morning.

What are your opinions on Hayden George? smile

We think it's nice, but would like some opinions first!

If your baby is already here and you've already named him then go for it! Dont ask mumsnet now or someone will make you sad by saying they don't like it

It's better than the grim Jayden/ Cayden trend that's unfortunately hanging around.

Wouldn't be top of my list but it's ok.

The spelling of Hadyn is a traditional Welsh baby name.

CancellyMcChequeface Sat 08-Oct-16 19:46:37

It might be traditional, but I'm afraid it blends in with all the Jayden/Kayden/Brayden names for me. Sorry!

I do like George - and congratulations on your baby boy! smile

SansasEscape Sat 08-Oct-16 20:00:24

I prefer it Haydn, as blank said.

Loyly Sat 08-Oct-16 20:02:33

I don't like -ayden sounding names, sorry.

blondieblondie Sat 08-Oct-16 20:03:25

I hate Jayden, Caden, Brayden, etc. but Hayden is ok. Maybe because I actually know one though.

Congratulations smile

I like it. Ignore the snotty idiots on here who sneer at Jayden type names.

MrsJayy Sat 08-Oct-16 20:05:37

Aww congratulations on Hayden people will hate it so dont listen its a fine name

WaitrosePigeon Sat 08-Oct-16 20:05:42

Really not very nice, personally.

George is lovely smile

Chewingthecrud Sat 08-Oct-16 20:06:12

Not keen TBH but don't hate it

usual Sat 08-Oct-16 20:07:36

Oh and congrats

HeteronormativeHaybales Sat 08-Oct-16 20:07:40

Haydn, if you're Welsh - fine.
Hayden - awful, and will date, badly.
Sorry.

HeteronormativeHaybales Sat 08-Oct-16 20:08:34

Oh, and if that makes me a snotty idiot, guilty as charged.

TheWeeBabySeamus1 Sat 08-Oct-16 20:10:43

It's my surname! smile

I always say (unless it's something like Crapbag) if you love the name then use it.

WaitrosePigeon Sat 08-Oct-16 20:11:55

I like it.

I know a lovely Hayden. smile

Congrats, OP! Hayden George is a great name.

Benedikte2 Sat 08-Oct-16 22:41:10

Not my top favourite but ok. Has been around much longer than similar names with the exception of Aiden (which I personally prefer) and is a quiet solid name. Goes nicely with the George.
Hope you'll all be very happy.

I wouldn't spell it Haydn, because it will get pronounced as High-dnn like the composer.

I like it .
Congratulations on your new arrival smile
