I like it as a first name also. I think it's attractive, yet mysterious.

I named my son this. It's Irish, and I'm half Irish and so is my husband. It sounded like a strong, unique name without being quirky.

Brody Dalle is the lead singer of the alternative rock band The Distillers (she's a girl!) Also, Brody was the name of Paige's love interest for a few episodes on the supernatural drama "Charmed."

I love this name. It is strong, handsome and mysterious. A real boys name and it isn't over used.

Brody is an awesome name for a boy. It sounds strong, rugged and handsome. I have seen girls given this name but myself I wouldn't use it for a girl.

Brody is an awesome name for a boy. I don't like it for a girl.

I would have a hard time giving a child a name that means "ditch."

Yuck. It sounds so trendy and makes me think of somebody who is an obnoxious jerk.

I like this name. I don't think it matters that much that it means ditch, after all, Claudia means "lame."

I named my son Brody, and it should be a boys name, after sheriff Brody from the movie "Jaws". It's a name for a tough guy with brains.

Brody Jenner is well-known for his appearance in the MTV reality show "The Hills". He had a brief courtship with Lauren after being set up with her through Heidi and Spencer.

I don't think it sounds very pleasant. It kind of makes me picture some obnoxious and immature jerk somehow. And it's got that ''BRO'' to it that makes me think of annoying frat boys anyway. I'm afraid that's what the guy would be nicknamed. Bleurgh!

I read a book which had a dog called Brody in it. Brody was my favourite character :). I like it for a dog, but it doesn't sound right for a person. There is no word that sounds like Brody and means "ditch" in Irish anymore, but the meaning is still off-putting.

Funny. I've been using this name on my brother as a nickname - as a portmanteau of 'bro' and '’í' (pronounced 'di' in hanyu pinyin, the character means 'younger brother').

That aside, Brody's quite a strong-sounding name, what with its being trochaic in nature, and its plosive sounds. It doesn't fit its origin. I'd use it more for a story character, I guess, now that I know of its origin (but my brother's nickname stays). But then again, some names never fail to ask the question "what's in a name?" - and this is one of them.

Brody can also be used as a nickname for Broderick.

Despite the fact that I do know a girl who has a dog named Brody, I would give one of my future sons this name.

It's strange, but a few seconds ago, when someone in the polls asked about this name, I thought it was terrible and stupid sounding. But then I thought about it, and I realized I thought it was actually really cute. Laughably adorable. I could totally picture a chubby baby, soon to be an awkward teenaged boy, with this name.

This name sounds too rough for me. But it would make a good name for an athlete.

A-dorable. PERFECT name for all ages... or at least I think. It's the name of my little sister's bear. Cute name. :)

I loathe this name. It reminds me of the word "broiled", and sounds like a new, trendy name that became popular only because it sounds like the name Cody. Unoriginal, uncreative, and boring.

I find it difficult to take the name "Brody" seriously... it truly does resemble something that owners would dub their new canine.

I suppose that it may be endearing on an infant... but that is the key: it is terribly juvenile, and relatively restricted to childhood. It is 'forever young,' I suppose-- wincingly difficult to imagine on a grown man (at his peak and in old age.)

Never would I weigh it with the same strength as "Benjamin" or "Benedict"... I fear that future employers will potentially have a similar thought-process. It is a name that may also create an extra barrier to demolish as an adult.
"Brody Selby" holds prospect to initially raise a few eyebrows in the professional world, silently questioning the bearer's qualifications and intelligence.

I love this name. It's adorable but I think it will age well.

I don't know... this name isn't the best for a girl, although it is nice for a boy.
