I think Brody is probably the best name in the history of any name ever to be used. I wish my name was Brody. IF only I could legally change it, but I'm too broke. Dang it mom. I hope you see this.

I somewhat like it on boys, except the meaning. Brody is way too masculine for girls.

I hate this name. It's too close to Brobee (a character from Yo Gabba Gabba), rhymes with GRODY and is one letter away from being BROODY.

I have a 51 year old son named Brody! We had never heard the name used other than a dinette company. We loved it and know three people that used it on their sons after meeting him. Today my grandson has a Brody in his preschool class. I believe we started the name many years ago. To all that have enjoyed it... You're welcome.

I know many girls with this name and not one boy. I see the feminine parts but it’s a masculine name.

I think this name sounds rough and too surname-y. I can't really imagine a Brody over the age of 6.

A little story about this name...

I graduated high school in 1991. The same year Point Break with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze debuted. Love that movie! Seen it at least a half dozen times.
Years later my son was born, so obviously, Brody was to be his name!
A couple days later a buddy asked me where I got the name from. Proudly, I replied, (bc he’s a huge P.B. fan to) from the movie Point Break!

To which he replied, “Umm Point Break? Patrick Swayzes’ character name was Bodhi.”

So thanks to my a.d.d., I’m here talking with you fine folks!

My cousin's name is Micheal. He goes by Brody, because that's his middle name. He's 3 years old. I don't think Brody would be a very nice first name.

Brody means "ditch". Ditch. Let that sink in. The "bro" in it isn't nice either.

I think Brody is an okay name. Sounds kind of cute and cool. I can see why some people think it sounds pretentious though. It also sounds like a surname.

I have a negative association, because of Brody Jenner, and because it starts with "bro" (slang for a certain kind of annoying guy), and because it rhymes with "grody," which was 1980s slang for disgusting. I don't mean this as a commentary on anyone who has the name (except Brody Jenner); you may be a wonderful guy named Brody. I just don't care for the name.

We named our first son Brody. We were looking for unique and of Irish/Gaelic decent. At the time(in 2009) I thought it was unique but I was definitely wrong. In my son's 2nd grade class there are 3! Still love it though!

Excuse me everyone who is saying Brody is a boy's name or a cocky name, but I am a girl named Brody and I'm struggling to like my name, but looking on this website has just made me realize how judgemental people can be.

I wouldn't mind naming a son this but I believe I would use Brody as only a middle name potential (:

I absolutely love this name for a boy! It sounds so awesome, trendy and fun. It suits all ages because I can imangine a cute little kid running around called Brody and I can also imagine a handsome man called Brody.

I like the name Brody. It's such a strong, masculine name that ages well, sounds good and looks nice written down.

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 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.

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

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

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.

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.

Brody can also be used as a nickname for Broderick.
mariej2  5/16/2010

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.

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.

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 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.

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