Name Meaning

1 Irish: reduced form of O’Hayden, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hÉideáin and Ó hÉidín ‘descendant of Éideán’ or ‘descendant of Éidín’, personal names apparently from a diminutive of éideadh ‘clothes’, ‘armor’. There was also a Norman family bearing the English name (see 2 below), living in County Wexford.2 English: habitational name from any of various places called Hayden or Haydon. The three examples of Haydon in Northumberland are named from Old English hēg ‘hay’ + denu ‘valley’. Others, for example in Dorset, Hertfordshire, Somerset, and Wiltshire, get the name from Old English hēg ‘hay’ (or perhaps hege ‘hedge’ or (ge)hæg ‘enclosure’) + dūn ‘hill’.3 Jewish: see Heiden .
