Comments for CODY:

I'm a Cody and I've found this doesn't translate into any language I've found. The only meaning I have heard it given is "cushion." All I'm sure of is that it must be repeated at least twice when people are asking "What is your name?" because Cody just can't be it; it must be Coby or Coley or Tody or many others which I don't think could even be categorized as names - or English.

Well, I think they just provided the meaning for you. Not all names literally translate into a perfect Gaelic word or anything, you know.

For some reason I've always viewed 'Cody' as a feminine name; I really have no clue why. I've never even known a Cody in my life, male or female. It's a lovely name nonetheless.

I had a dog named Cody that was a girl, and everyone thought she was a boy. But then I've seen lots of people named Cody who are men.

The first Cody I met was a girl, she's 18 now. Because of that, I've always thought of Cody as more of a girl's name than a boy's name.

I'm a Cody and it's funny because every time I introduce myself to someone it seems like they always have a dog named Cody, which is irritating a little. But I am a man, and all the Codys I have ever known have been boys. I guess it could go either way though.

I like the name Cody and prefer it for a boy. I read somewhere that it also means helpful.

Cody is an awesome name for a boy. It sounds rugged and handsome.

My dog was female, and named Cody, and it fit her, but I prefer it as a masculine name. There is someone named Cody that I know who I really like, so I think I like the name more because of him.

Oh, dear God! All this naming girls boys names must end. Cody is a very handsome, sensitive BOYS name. Not a "strong, pretty" girls name. Sure, some people have slipped up and named their daughters Cody, but that doesn't mean that it's acceptable or justified. Naming a female dog or cat this is fine, but a child? Please, no. (Sorry to scold. This IS a boys name, and I'd hate to single anyone out)

Cody Gifford, son of Kathie Lee. When she was on "Regis and Kathie Lee" Cody's likes, dislikes, habits, experiences, and traits were discussed ad nauseam. She ruined the name for a lot of parents. It's very popular for pets, though.

I used to like this name, but then I met a boy named Cody, and he was mean. I also read a book with an obscene character named Cody in it, so that made me hate the name more. I think it's not a bad name, though, so long as you aren't obscene or mean.

My name is Cody Lynn. I am indeed a female and I like my name. But I don't like the way it is spelled, so in school I put my name as Codi instead. It is unique and I have met no other females with this name.

When I hear this name, it only reminds me of a young boy's name, not a older man's name.

I love this name because it's sexy!

People who give their sons this name are not considering the fact that some day their sons will be grown men. Cody is cute on a little boy, but on a grown man it is silly.
-- queenv  4/17/2008
My brother's name is Cody, and it fits him perfectly. He is not a little boy, he is a grown man, and it is not at all silly on him. I know two other grown men named Cody, and it seems smart and strong on them. I know a baby named Cody too, and it is very cute on a baby. I've known one girl named Codie and she hated her name and changed her name to Cordelia.

The one good thing about this name is the Mogwai connotation. There is a lovely melancholic track titled Cody on their 1999 album Come on Die Young, and the initials of that wonderful album spell out CODY. That's the only good thig about this name. I find this name to be far too immature for adults. Somehow I picture rather annoying little kids and middle school jerks when I read and hear this name, at least when I think about the American usage. I do also think about Mogwai, but I can't say I like the name at all.

Cody is a last name, people call me Cody all the time and don't even know it's my last name. Comes from Mac Otto means "son of rich man".
-- slainte4904  6/26/2008
I'm Irish and Cody from Castlecomer, Kilkenny, Ireland, the birthplace of the name. The fact that Buffalo Bill Cody's grandparents came from Tipperary doesn't change that factoid. When the English first invaded Ireland 900 years ago, they still were Normans, or French speaking Vikings. The first Cody was Odo (old Norsk for Otto = rich) Archdeacon. In Gaelic or Irish, Archdeacon is impossible to pronounce, so his descendants were called Son of Odo or Mac Odo. Anglicization has turned that into Cody, the C being what's left of the Mac. There are many other Norman Irish names. We are the people, who became more Irish than the Irish. Slainte!

I personally love this name. It may help that my boyfriend's name is Cody, and I think it suits him really well. I don't think it should be used as a girl name, though.

-- dischord33  4/15/2009
I think it is a very strong and handsome BOY name. I never have, nor ever wish to, met a female Cody. Just thinking about it makes me shudder.

Cody is babyish, obnoxious, and overused. I can't stand it. Pick something else.
-- bananarama  8/9/2009
This name sounds extremely childish, and it's one of those names that I'm always hearing on what seems like every tenth boy under the age of ten. I don't get the appeal at all, though at least I'm no longer hearing it quite as often as I did awhile ago. The only grown man I can picture this name on is a cowboy.
-- Anyechka  8/12/2009
My boyfriend's name is Cody and it's good name. Not childish at all.

This name is so babyish and tacky. I honestly don't see the appeal in it.
-- Chrila96  10/17/2010
This name is really popular where I live. My brother's name is Cody, and I know at least six Codys who go to my school. Also I know some who spell their name "Kody". It is a nice name, but a lot of people are naming their children this.

I think Cody's a great name for a dog. For a human, not so much.
-- mrose19  4/13/2011
My name is Codie. I never really liked my name, until recently. I receive a lot of comments on it being cute, and I realized that if I had another name, I would not be myself. I dislike that people think it is a boy's name, because there are plenty of male names that people choose as girl names, even those you may not suspect- Trevor, for example. Another thing that is annoying is whenever someone asks your name, you need to repeat it at least one or two more times. They always think your name is Kori or something else. Once, I got a "Katy". Seriously, just because it's spelled with an ie, it doesn't mean it's pronounced differently.

I liked this name, but unfortunately my neighbour gave it to her dog.
-- enchy  8/4/2011
It's a fitting name for a cute little boy, but I can't see it on an adult that isn't a Western cowboy.

My brother is 22 and his name is Cody. My cousin's boyfriend is also named Cody and he is 20. The name suits them both very well. I personally like it, though I prefer it for a female. It's far too overused as a male name.
-- eva-321  2/10/2013
I think it's a great name really, although it does seem very popular now. I've never heard of a girl with the name though. My bf's name is Cody and also my dog which is kind of weird but I named the dog before I met the boy ha :) Also everyone calls him "Code", like they needed to shorten the name anymore!
-- Anonymous User  4/23/2014
I used to detest this name. Recently, I have found Cody to be very endearing, very sweet - but not an incredibly "mature" name.
-- Francesca  6/18/2014
I hate the name "Cody." It sounds like a girl's name, and it tends to remind me of an immature teenager.
