Scadden Name Meaning
Irish: of uncertain origin. It is possibly a reduced form of the Scottish surname Garscadden, a habitational name from a place east of Glasgow; alternatively it may be from Gaelic scadán ‘herring’, a word probably borrowed from Norse. There have been Scaddans in Tipperary since the 12th century.
