Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Camdyn

Camdyn is a variant spelling of Camden. Camden is the transferred use of an English surname which was derived from a place name. The original settlement, Campedene, was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is located in Gloucestershire, England. The name comes from the Olde English word “campa-denu” from the Latin "campus" (camp, enclosure) and “denu” (valley). The location essentially signified a valley with camp enclosures, and the surname would have been given to a person who hailed from such a place. The forename Camden is a modern development following the popular trend of using last names as given names, and it has become quite popular in the United States. So much so that variant Americanized spellings have taken shape: Camdyn and Kamden are examples of this.

Personality

OF THE BOY NAME CAMDYN

Romance is the hallmark of the Six personality. They exude nurturing, loving, and caring energy. Sixes are in love with the idea of love in its idealized form - and with their magnetic personalities, they easily draw people toward them. Like the number Two personality, they seek balance and harmony in their life and the world at large. They are conscientious and service-oriented, and a champion for the underdog. These personalities naturally attract money and are usually surrounded by lovely material objects - but their human relationships are always primary. They thrive in giving back to others rather than being motivated by their own desires. This is when they achieve great things. Sixes are natural teachers, ministers and counselors.

Popularity

OF THE BOY NAME CAMDYN

As Camden has risen in popularity in the past 20 years, the Kamden and Camdyn spellings surfaced on the charts. The spelling of Camdyn is the newest to the Top 1000 list, having first appeared in 2010. Camdyn has only been around a couple years so it’s too soon to tell if parents take a liking to this particular spelling over time. We will say this, though. Camdyn with the “-dyn” suffix looks overly feminized so we won’t be surprised if it turns unisex. However this “-dyn” suffix is nothing new to American baby boys. A lot of names have morphed into similar spellings. Just consider the following: Aiden -> Aidyn; Brayden -> Bradyn; Jayden -> Jaidyn; Jordan -> Jordyn; Kaden -> Kadyn and Landon -> Landyn. Really, though? They look kind of girly to us but okay.
