Acadian is spelled Acadien in French. The "A" was gradually dropped and "Cadien" was used. In old French, "di" was pronounced like a "j" so Cadien sounded like Cajun.
Since the Acadians inter-married with the other groups in Louisiana, nearly all the descendants of the early settlers have become Cajuns!
