The Ultimate -aidan Guide (Boys) 2012: Beyond the Top 1000

That time of year has come—the 2012 Social Security (SSA) baby name list has been released! While it shows the rankings of each name, the rankings are much different when combined. 

Anyone that has been looking at names or has been around young children has probably noticed the increase of "-aidan" knockoff names. Some are legit names with a history behind them. The vast majority of them, however, are a jumble of letters. 

What happened to Aidan?

So, here it is, the ultimate guide to all of the -aidan variations, much like the list I did for 2010. Unlike the 2010 list, this one also includes names that were used 5-9 times. I may have missed a few variations and there may be a few that some of you may not agree with. Once I got out of the Top 1000, it became much more difficult to sift through all of the so called names (many of which are made-up and modern) and decide which ones might follow the trend.

A friendly WARNING, some of the variations below are kind of...scary. Many of them make me wonder what people were thinking.

Enjoy!
