The character in The Fox and the Hound does have this as his name however it's actually spelled with only one 'd' at the end.

This is the name of my first son. It suits him to a T. We chose it before he was born and for some reason he came out ginger. Hehe, bit of a coincidence.

The word "Tod" literally translates to the word "Death" in German.

The reason I named my dog Todd was because he was hunting and catching crickets in the field when we found him, and that made me think of the little hound-dog "Copper" from "The Fox and the Hound". But I didn't like the name Copper so I named him Todd after the fox instead.

I think this is a wonderful name, because I had a friend named Todd who was a very nice person and when I hear the name, I think of him, so I think the name is great!

Weird, I always thought this was a nickname for Theodore, for some reason.

This has always sounded like the name of idiotic macho guys, or ever since the 90s, when I watched Beavis and Butthead, and this was the name of such a guy, anyway. I don't know why, but it just doesn't sound very intelligent.

Fabulous name. I'm a little biased because it's my husband's name. He fits his name well. "Todd" is concise but strong sounding, it's a name that doesn't need to go on and on. That's how he is. Very intelligent, a strong leader, but he can be gentle and kind as well.

It's funny how short names like Todd end up getting enlongated for nickname's sake. He's had people close to him call him "Todd-o", "Todder", etc., though he doesn't care much for any of those nicknames. :)

My husband also gets many [somtimes unwelcome] nicknames from me, his friends, and his family. Ex: Toddzilla, Toddness, Todd the Bod, Toddle, Odd Todd, and in grade school, for some reason "Toddy Potty". Definitely the most unappreciated.
Daisy Miller  7/28/2008
With this name I picture a simple, but mildly clever, boy from the country. It's very charming.

My husband and I were debating last night whether "Todd" was short for anything. I thought maybe it was short for "Theodore" or something like that. Guess he was right! By the way, neither of us like this name all that much. It's a little boring.

I'm not that keen on this name. It's sadly been over-Americanised, in my opinion, but I like the 'fox' meaning. And a famous bearer of this name is a character from the Beatrix Potter series of children's books, who is named Mr. Tod. He is a fox in The Tale of Mr. Tod. The only difference is it is obviously spelt with one d, but I thought it appropriate to put it here, because they both mean the same thing.

Todd the Wraith from Stargate Atlantis, played by Christopher Heyerdahl. Given the character's personality, I think Sheppard picked a very appropriate name for him.

In the video game "Death Jr." the son of Death is named Todd due to the Germanic translation of the name, meaning "death".

I like this name. Short, simple, but still has strength. I can also see this on both a boy, and a man.

I have always thought of a hot, brown haired dude who is a jock and wears a lot of green and has a great white smile and is very nice.. when I hear this name :) Good name!
xxlovedisxx  5/13/2011
I don't recommend this name. My ex-boyfriend's name was Todd and he caught all kinds of grief. I think this name is best to stay back in the 1970s and early 1980s.
GibsonGirl  9/14/2011
This is my middle name, and I hate it! It's the first syllable of toddler or an odd kind of toad. It sounds like it should be a word. This combined with a too-popular first name are why I want to change my name.

Todd Beamer was the passenger on Flight 93 who said the now famous words "Let's Roll".

I never knew it meant fox in English or Death in German when spelled with one d, which interestingly enough the person who said Tod in The Fox and The Hound was spelled with one d was right. I kind of figured this name was used when a parent forgot the fact that a child is only a "Toddler" for so long, kids grow up fast. I know because my sweet little brother did and I was in absolutely no way ready for him to turn 18 last August.

Now knowing it is not a name derived from the word Toddler, I think I like it better, though I am not certain because I have German family and "Death" as a meaning for such a nice name is not great. So, I would probably never end up using this personally, but I think it is Charming, considering Fox and The Hound was one of those movies I used to watch over and over every day as a child, driving my sister mad, ha!

I like this name, there should be more people named this in my opinion.
Ali Hassan  2/18/2015
In Stephen King's novella 'Apt Pupil', the main character is named Todd Bowden. Suffice it to say that the already mentioned German meaning, 'death', suits him just fine.

I love this name and want to see a comeback!

I was born a Todd.

I had it legally changed to my current name (a year ago).

I never liked it. I never liked it being used in reference to me. And I never liked the way that it sounded.
Maybe it is because I grew up in an abusive family where the sound of it coming at me felt like a swear word? I dunno. I just know that I disliked it terribly.

It was hard for me to pronounce without having to tell someone over and over and OVER again what I just said (before finally just spelling it out).
And I was the brunt of so many horrible jokes because of it.

I had a very difficult time with Todd and I am glad I changed it.

Furthermore, whenever I see Todd associated with anyone in film or television they are usually some anti social creep character.
The one Todd that I loved in a movie was the Todd in "Easy A" starring Emma Stone.

I'm a Todd, and with this bod, people think I'm a god, that may be odd, but it's just my facade. Very mod.
Known as Toad by those that love me, as "toddy woddy doo-doo face" by my elementary school colleagues with limited vocabulary. Called Scott by people who think they remembered my name. (To all Todds, you know this is true, Google it). Yes, it is a stupid name, sounds strange, unless you hear an English person say it.
toadally  7/19/2017
Oh, and no one commented on the most famous of all Todds, Bill Murray as Todd to Gilda Radner's Lisa on the recurring "Todd & Lisa" skit on Saturday Night Live. "That's so funny I forgot to laugh!" If you don't know this skit, Youtube it and enjoy. It will make your day.
toadally  7/19/2017
Whenever I try to picture someone with this name, I picture like a creep or a pervert. Besides that, Todd is such an ugly sounding name.
― Anonymous User  8/19/2017
My name is Todd. When I was a kid I hated my name, mostly because of the older bullies calling me Toad or Odd-Todd and the like. Now that I'm almost 50 years old, I like my name because it IS very masculine and strong and the added bonus of it being easy to pronounce and very easy for people to remember.
tjdavey23  11/26/2017
This is a funny sounding name to me, and this definitely sounds like a name that would get picked on a lot.
