I have an older brother named Jay. I was his side kick when we were growing up and I daydreamed about naming my child after him,, I came up with he name jayden when I was about 12 years old,, just made it up. That was 1977..
So In 1986 When my daughter was born I named her Jayden. A few years later my brother jay opened a casting agency on the corner of hollywood and vine ..if I remeber correctly. It was called ‘ To the top’ and its sister agency that was for kids was called ‘ March Hare’ jayden would frequent his office and participate in whatever was going on there. On occasion people would ask if they could borrow her name. And so it went from there.
Now jer name is super popular,,,, she is all grown up (31)and calls herself Jade…
