FOR REAL: Brayden is one of those names that came out of nowhere and then became popular, riding the coattails of other rhyming names like Aidan, Caden and Jayden. Originally, Braden was an anglicization of the irish surname Ó Bradáin, which comes from a personal name meaning "salmon." The salmon was an important creature in Irish folklore; eating the Salmon of Knowledge (bradán feasa in Irish) is how Fionn Mac Cool got his wisdom.
