Arden – Scary Mommy

Arden

This could be a modern virtue name, like the Puritanical names Mercy or Patience - because it sounds like "ardent," meaning "passionate." But some sources say Arden is derived from the Celtic word "ardu," meaning "high land" and later used to describe forests. Maybe this means your little Arden will be passionate about forests? After all, somebody's gotta be!
