Spelling most important.

Aodhán - is a masculine Irish Gaelic given name found in Cornish (and other) Personal Names from the 10th century sn. Aedan, which says that "Although versions of this name are not uncommon in Old English and Medieval Welsh records, it is most likely Irish Aodhán rather than a Brythonic cognate.

On Concerning the Names Aidan,Aédán, Aodh, and the Like found at at the top of the page "Aidan is a modern English spelling of the early medieval Gaelic name Áedán. It was relatively common in early medieval Ireland, and was the name of at least two 6th and 7th century saints. In the late Middle Ages, the saint's name was spelled Aodhán, but the name appears to have dropped out of common use after the 10th century or so. Its modern popularity dates to a revival in the 19th or 20th century. (Withycombe; OCM; Woulfe; CE; Annals)"
