    Ayden is usually a variant (another spelling) of the Turkish name Aydin, which means “educated”, “enlightened”, “intellectual”.

    Ayden can also be a variant of the Arabic name Aydin, which is a word used in the Quran to mean “power”. This word is never used as a name by Arabs, but non-Arab Muslims use it as a name.

    The two names have different pronunciations. The Turkish name is pronounced EYE + garDEN, while the Arabic name is pronounced (AI)d + garDEN.
