Prefer it for girls.

Jody is the boy in the BFG movie by Disney who was previously taken in by the BFG. He loved to read and draw, and taught the BFG to write. He was found and eaten by the other giants. Sophie hides in his old room when the giants are looking to eat her as well.

My uncle goes by Jody, or sometimes Joe. In his case it is a nickname. His real first name is George. I have heard that it is used as a nickname for George.

I think it's adorable and it'd be nice to see on a little girl. It's dated but I still like it.

I think it would be cute to name a boy Joab or Joseph and call him Jody.

I really, really hate this name. I knew an awful girl with this name that has forever tainted my opinion of it. Otherwise, it's a perfectly decent name and I actually rather like the name it's derived from, Judy, although I like Judith better.

If it is a variant of Judy, then it would be cool to name a girl Judith and call her Jody. Though Judy is very pretty too. When I was little, I had a babysitter named Jody and I think it's a warm, affectionate name with a lot of spunk. I only like it for girls.

As I previously stated on "Jodie":
Unless it is strictly a nickname, I personally hold nonexistent favor for the name "Jody."
Beside the fact that I feel that it is infantile, the "D" (in this case) morphs it harshly.

"Judy," on the other hand, I am quite fond of.

I think it's hip, and, yes very pretty. Jody Sweetin the actress from "Full House" the tv show is the only Jody I am familiar with.

I quite like this name. It is youthful and sophisticated, and is also not too long. I prefer it on males.

My name is Jodie and I've always been proud of my name. Maybe it sounds too "American" but it's nice in some way.

If your name is Jody and take a fancy to an animal, no matter how hard you work, don't expect it to end well.

Much more of a boys name with the y on the end. I personally really like this name, due to the fact it is short but could suit any personality.

I haven't actually heard of guys named Jody, but I have heard of women named Jodie, so I find it a bit difficult to associate this name with males. I don't see why this name wouldn't work for males in the sense that the name sounds like Coby and Cody and other boyish names like that, but the trouble is that it really sounds boyish rather than manly. That's why I think it sounds better on females, as it doesn't sound so immature on them.

I think the name Jody is more for a boy than a girl, I have heard of Jody for both sexes, but I think it is more for the male than the female.

The boys in Steinbeck's The Red Pony and Marjorie Kinnan Rawling's The Yearling are both called Jody.

I like this name for a girl, my favorite spelling is Jodie. I have only seen this name as girl usage.
