Aidan seems to be a big name in the United States right now. I thought it was some recent thing, since there's been a tendency toward more and more unique names in the past few decades. So I was surprised to come across the name when I was reading about the seventh century in a world history book. I guess Aidan was a revered Irish missionary, according to Bede's "A History of the English Church an People, A.D. 731-732.
No question, just found it interesting. You learn something new every day.
