This is the contemporary spelling of the traditional Gaelic name Caden. Originally MacCaiden, a Scottish clan name, the Gaelic word caiden means “fighter” or “warrior”. Its popularity is buoyed by similar-sounding English-language favorites like Hayden and Braden. This led to a flurry of alternate spellings like Cadyn, Kaeden and Kadyn, as well as the contracted, single-syllable Cade.
