George Carlin was right about this name… sorry but Vinny, Nicky, or Tony could beat Todd’s butt any day. Soft name.
For some reason, this name looks strange to me written down. It just doesn't look right with the two D's. It makes me uncomfortable.
My name is Todd. I was born in 1958. When I was a teenager, my Mom (God rest her soul) told me that when my Dad and she named me they thought I looked rather simple because I had a lazy eye, so they wanted a single syllable name that would be easy for me to spell. Their options were Beau, Clay or Todd. My Dad said, "Let's call him Todd. It's only three letters and one of them is doubled." I loved my parents and I love my name.
My name is Todd and I really love my name. Your name is a gift given to you at birth. It's a part of you. And you can make fun of anyone's name if you think hard enough. But if you are making fun of someone's name then well, you're childish. My name is Todd Morgan and I can't imagine being anything else.
Awesome. My fursonas name...
I love the name Todd.

It is succinct, to the point, and very original.

My name is Todd. I used to hate it. It was used to bully and tease me in school so I kinda had a hard time with it, initially.
But when I started hearing certain people pronounce it, I got to like it.

Also, my Mother (who is now deceased) named me. So it has a special resonance for me.

And forget George Carlin and his lame ass comedy.

Todd's a great name and hopefully, one day, it will make a resurgence.
Imagine being called Todd lol that's embarassing.
Sounds very classy and handsome!
I'm Todd and it's the best possible name ever. I guess if you're easily picked on and show others you are bugged easily then being called toad could give it a slight downside but personally I always made a joke to counteract it no matter how little sense it made and then as anything else allowed it to roll off my back and they lost interest. For those of you who quit on the name because as a child you were too sensitive... LMAO! I had no idea there were people out there in the world so damn soft.. what did you tell your father when you changed it? Or your son... "yes there are so many scars from when I was 7 years old that 25 years later I meed to change my name..." Bahahahah good we real Todd's don't want you quitters anyway. Todd is the best name ever because no one forgets your name and it's short and sweet to sign stuff and type and write and say and it's common enough not to be foreign to others. It's the perfect level of popularity for my liking.. And if you ask the women... this "toad" has the best tongue you will ever find... lol awww they called me toad... bahahahah... hell yea I'm Todd which means sly fox and by time I turned ten toad meant I bragged about how high I could jump and how good my tongue was... Maybe I like Todd because I got a big... and I have a nice bod... when I ask for something women just nod... I am here and I'm another Todd just blessed by God!
Todd Carty (1963- ) is a British actor best known for playing Tucker in Grange Hill and Mark Fowler in Eastenders.
Being a boy named Todd, I personally hate the name, it seems to be a name for wimps and people who can't stand up for themselves. That's why I want a name change.
I personally think Todd is a nice name, I don't get all the dislike towards it.
I too, have felt the sting of rudeness and poor usage of varied twists of the name. However, when I later in life learned that Todd is also Fox, I realized that my name was too cool. Spanish for Fox is Zorro!
It's actually my brother's middle name legally but he uses it as his first name. Believe me, his first legal name is old and it is also my father's name, making him basically a "Jr." but he never used that suffix. It is Todd and that is the way it should have been.
Todd is the dumbest name that I have ever heard.
Love George Carlin’s bit on this name.

Very boring.
This is a funny sounding name to me, and this definitely sounds like a name that would get picked on a lot.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I love this name and want to see a comeback!
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 like this name, there should be more people named this in my opinion.
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!

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.
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.
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!

In the video game "Death Jr." the son of Death is named Todd due to the Germanic translation of the name, meaning "death".
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.
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.
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.
With this name I picture a simple, but mildly clever, boy from the country. It's very charming.
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.
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. :)
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.
