I just don't get a Jayden vibe from Florida or Isaiah from New Mexico.
I get a Billy Joe and Jamal vibe from Alabama.

Northern New Mexico Hispanics love Old Testament names like Isaiah and Elijah and Ezekiel, I kid you not.

Their grandparents and great-grandparents often have names like Florinio, Amancio, and Hortensia. Old Latin names are out, Anglicised Old Testament names are in.

According to Behind the Name, Jaden dates back to the mid 1990's.

I know you're playing, but on a more serious note, as a Georgian, I've never known a Cletus, unless you're talking about Cletus T. Judd, a pen name of a country/comedy performer.

The name Cletus, short for Anacletus, is a Greek name and was most popular in the US in the early late 19th - 20th century when Neo-Romantic, Greek revival culture was at its popular peak.

A pretty cultured name actually. How it somehow became a stereotypical hillbilly name is beyond me. It is more like the name of a plantation's first born.
