How would you spell Caden?

I know it isn't liked on here, so no need to say that. I'm just wondering on spelling. Would you assume a child, who told you their name was Caden, spell it as Caden? I really don't know on what the 'correct' spelling is. Is it supposed to be the same as Hayden/Jayden, so Cayden? Help!

Kayden. Mind you that looks wrong but is the first thought that came to mind.

Personally I would spell it Kaiden. Lovely name.

I've taught one, he spelt it Cadan.

Caden is how we spelt it for ds3.

There are too many variations to make guessing worthwhile, so I'd always ask the parent/child (once they're old enough to know).

I know two. Spelt Caiden. South east if it's a regional spelling thing?

The only one I know is Kayden so I would instinctively think that. Caden looks weird to be although that might be the 'right' spelling.

Kayden is the more common spelling here but I would probably ask as there are so many different ways you can spell it.

Caiden. Definitely no K.

I think Caden looks the nicest. But I tend to prefer the C names over K variations.

I know one, spelt Caiden

I know one, spelled Caiden.

I quite like it spelled as Kayden, as that's most popular. I also know a Kaidyn, which I'm not keen on, but it's another spelling. x

I also know one, also spelt Caiden!

Caidan or Kaidan have been popular spellings at work. I prefer it with a C.

TwentyCups Thu 27-Oct-16 19:46:10

I only know one who is a Kayden. So that would be my go-to, although I think Kaiden (like Aiden) works. Caden seems fine though, similar to Cadence which is a girls name I love.
I love the name Kayden - unfortunately the only one I know is a family member so probably won't use it. It's a great name though, lucky you smile

happymumof4crazykids Thu 27-Oct-16 19:48:41

I know of two both spelt Caiden

sunshineintheclouds Thu 27-Oct-16 19:51:21

My dss is "kaiden". Like every other name a thousand and one ways to spell it no doubt confused

Pluto30 Thu 27-Oct-16 20:25:58

I prefer it spelt Caden or Caiden.

MitzyLeFrouf Thu 27-Oct-16 20:26:32

Caden, similar to Cadence.

FuckThatToOneSide Thu 27-Oct-16 20:55:51

I'd spell it Kayden, but then I know one. His mum said she made the name up confused. He is about 7 or 8 now I think and a bit of cheeky chappy! Not a bad boy though.
