DMIL is Cadence, so it's nice for that reason too.

Don't think the name will go down well on mumsnet.
I wouldn't use this name but can understand the family link which I think is lovely. Can you use as middle name?

crje Sun 07-Aug-16 23:03:14

Not a fan

Sounds like a product name

Nothing wrong with it in itself but it's a big ubiquitous. Every second little boy these days seems to be some variant of Cayden/Jayden etc.

UntilTheCowsComeHome Sun 07-Aug-16 23:03:51

I think it's lovely.

Tiggeryoubastard Sun 07-Aug-16 23:04:36

It's one you hear screeched. Usually belongs to a mullet haired boy with an earring. Awful. Truly awful.

SansaClegane Sun 07-Aug-16 23:05:45

Horrid. No.

I quite like it actually, especially with the family connection and no 'y'
I don't know any Caydens so it doesn't hold any connotation for me.

donajimena Sun 07-Aug-16 23:07:52

No. Absolutely not. Can't help but think you already know that though!

austenozzy Sun 07-Aug-16 23:13:42

Agree with tigger. Also sounds like a detergent.

Stevefromstevenage Sun 07-Aug-16 23:15:45

No sorry

birchygoo Sun 07-Aug-16 23:17:38

I like it - but then again I don't like half the names that seem to be popular on here

Catgirl83 Sun 07-Aug-16 23:19:01

Sorry, no. I also agree with Tigger.

Onedaftmonkey Sun 07-Aug-16 23:19:05

In our road we have a Caden, Hayden and a Jayden. I don't like any of them (little shits that they are)


BettyDraper1 Sun 07-Aug-16 23:28:29

I read before that registers with the names 'Cayden, Hayden and Jayden' make teachers' hearts sink. Always the naughty boys, apparently.

LockedOutOfMN Sun 07-Aug-16 23:30:18

I like Cadence, but I don't like Caden, not least because if I heard it I might think it was Aiden and even if I heard correctly I wouldn't know how to spell it.

Kiwiinkits Sun 07-Aug-16 23:32:48

chavtastic, sorry.

LucyFuckingPevensie Sun 07-Aug-16 23:33:50

As you may have guessed it's not really a MN name, we have friends in Cornwall who name their ds Cadan as it is a Cornish name.
It won't get a very good reception on here, but that really doesn't matter. If you like the name go for it.

EllenDegenerate Mon 08-Aug-16 00:36:10

There are worse names.

Its it as if you're spelling it Cayden and it has family significance.

You won't feel any love for it here but fwiw it wouldn't effect a raised eyebrow from me.

Porcupinetree Mon 08-Aug-16 08:33:37

Horrible in my opinion, sorry.

Tuiles Mon 08-Aug-16 08:37:21

I know a Kayden, a Cayden and a Caeden and they are all lovely boys from a variety of backgrounds. I think it's a great name.

GinIsIn Mon 08-Aug-16 08:46:09

I'm sorry but it's a no from me too, for the reasons given above.

MephistoMarley Mon 08-Aug-16 09:20:59

People will make assumptions because as you've seen classism is a real issue with names. Caden type names are considered working class which obviously also means poorly behaved and badly parented hmm
Having said that I don't like Caden just because it doesn't look like a finished name. It isn't a variant of cadence so that link is a bit tenuous.
