1) Does Arden seem like a male or female name to you (it seems much more male to me, but I read somewhere that it's become more common as a female name)



2) What are your thoughts on this name (for a boy specifically)?

It seems like a boys name to me and I think I like it but it reminds me of what we used to have to say when we farted at school. "Pardon Mrs Arden theres a chicken in your garden."

I had a 10 yr old girl at camp named Arden. I thought it suited her and was original.

Sorry if my comment put you off. That would be why I wouldnt call my child Arden but it really is a nice name the more I think of it and it shouldnt get mispelt and its unique without being Trendeigh

Arden sounds extremely masculine to me - don't let the use of it on girls put you off it for a boy, it's such a stupid trend right no to use very masculine names for girls, it will eventually blow over.



It DOES sound a little awkward, though, like garden without the G?

Sounds like a masculine name to me.
