I met a man from Catauna named Jordi. At first I didn't like it, but now I do. Yordi or Jordi both look good to me.

This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it became well-known (but never fully popular) thanks to Dutch soccer legend Johan Cruyff (b. 1947), who named his only son Jordi (b. 1974). Cruyff and his wife were living in the city Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) at the time - but briefly went back to The Netherlands for the birth - which is how he and his wife were inspired to use this name. Jordi would go on to become a soccer player in his own right.

The name Jordi was most popular between 1993 and 1999 (with 440 births in 1996 being the highest number), after which the name slowly decreased in popularity. There were only 33 little Jordis born in 2011.

Finally, the Dutch pronunciation of this name is: YAWR-dee.

I can't believe none of you added Jordi Savall as the famous bearer of this name! He's the world famous Catalan composer that has been conducting, composing and re-composing the medieval and renaissance music for almost 40 years now.

Pronounced JOHR-dee, not ZHOR-dee, as the French tend to do...

Jordi can be used as a playful nickname to Jordan, though is most likely spelled as 'Jordy'.
