Our baby boy is 3 days old. Should we go for Aedan or Ardan? smile thanks!

Neither. Aidan or Ardal.

What Maud said.

Congratulations on your baby boy flowers

Ardal is a cracking name. As we're stopping at our 2 DDs I'm sad I'll never get to pick an awesome Irish boy's name for a baby. Maybe I need a dog...

I've only heard Arden for a female. Aedan - is that a traditional spelling?

Aeden. Ardon sounds like a Cockney saying 'hard on'.

Agree with what Maud said.

Aiden or maybe Auden. Not keen on your choices.
Congratulations by the way.

Aidan or Adrian are ok

strawberrypenguin Tue 25-Apr-17 21:36:24

I though Arden was a girls name? So Aidan

Sophronia Tue 25-Apr-17 21:40:25

Aidan or Ardal

Aidan is a good name

buttercup54321 Tue 25-Apr-17 21:56:48

Aiden. Adrian. Rhian.

I like Arden, but prefer it for a girl (and prefer this spelling, as in Elizabeth Arden).

I don't like Aeden.

How about Auden? I went to school with an Auden. Cool name, very unusual too.

I don't like either and would go for Aidan, but of the two I would say Aedan as Ardan sounds a bit close to 'ard on (eek).

Haven't heard the Irish name Ardal before, but if you live in Wales perhaps not this either as it's the Welsh word for 'area' and is on lots of public signage, etc. To me seeing that written as a name looks very odd! grin

Swedish, Aedan is a traditional spelling, possibly in Old Irish? (although I think it was actually Áedán). It is not commonly used, although I do know one little Aedan.

An example:

I hope that helps anyone wondering 'where the OP got her spellings from'. hmm

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Wed 26-Apr-17 13:50:34

Ardal is simply fabulous.

Adean... There are so many little Aiden/Aidans. And Aydens, Aydun etc.
Adean is lovely, but there are so many ways to misspell this...
