The name Ryden? or Raiden?

My brother is naming his son this when he is born and every one hates the name. I don't know what spelling he is using though but I like Ryden. It's cute and uncommon.
What do you think?



Just found out it will be Raiden

  • Honestly, I don't care for it. It sounds made up. Plus, all those "-aiden" and "-ayden" ending names are soooo wildly overused that they truly bug me. Sorry, no offense to anyone.

  • I agree with poptart0325. Raiden makes me think of Raid or Radon gas and Ryden sounds like someone tried to change Ryder just a bit to make it different. No offense meant. If they like the name and go with it, at least the kid won't have anyone in his class with the same name.

  • Not a fan..first thing I thought of was bug spray. But it isn't my kid so whatever floats their boat.

  • Raidon is the name of my friends dog. Ryden is alright though.

  • I don't really like either name. Raiden makes me think of Raid, the bug spray and Ryden just sounds like someone tried to do something different than Ryder.

    I love the name Ryder though.
