CADDEN Family History

Recorded as Caddan, Caden, Cadden, Caddin, Cadding, and others, this is a surname of Olde English and Scottish pre 7th century origins. It derives from the personal name of ancient times 'Cada' of which the literal meaning is believed to be 'rounded'. As such it may originally have applied to a person who lived by a rounded hill or promentary, or a burial barrow. It may even have applied to a person who was himself 'rounded' or again given the robust humour of those long off times, the complete reverse! The name itself is probably tribal and refers to the 'Cada people' (-ing).
