Thoughts on Brody

    My husband and I are really liking Brody for a little boy. Would love to hear honest thoughts on this name as it is not very common where we live and I have never known anyone personally with this name. Thank you in advance!

    It’s not really my cup of tea. I do know a little Brody though and he’s super cute. It fits him well.

    I’m not a fan. I understand the appeal these days, but I always think it sounds too much like “grody.” Plus, “Bro” is such a common term for people these days, like “dude” or “man,” and I cannot read or hear Brody without hearing just the Bro part. I like the similar Brady a lot more…

    Love Brody! It’s one of my favorites. I took it off my list for a short while because I couldn’t see me with a Brody, but I loved it so much that I just had to bring it back. :) I’m toying around with the Brodie spelling, as it almost seems more legitimately Scottish (Irish?) and less trendy, but I do love it period! Such a cool name. I would love to have a Brody one day.

    I guess that’s our hesitation. People seem to either love it, or hate it.
    We have a short list of boys:
    Brody
    Griffin
    Graham
    Josiah
    Logan

    Brody seems quite different to me from the other names on your list. It isn’t my style personally, but I think it’s a nice name that would fit well on a cowboy type guy. I could see a Brody and a Wade as brothers working on a ranch together. The names you listed are all handsome, but Josiah, Griffin, and Logan seem more like quiet, studious types than cowboys to me. I like Graham the best. It seems like you are drawn more to less common names. Is there a particular name vibe you are shooting for?

    The rest of the names on your list are, in my opinion, 10 million times better than Brody! Josiah is on my list and Graham is also super handsome. Logan and Griffin are great names too.

    Well we are TTC and have really been working hard on names because I am a planner and like to have ideas in mind. Those names are just the only ones I would strongly consider using. I guess I haven’t thought about a particular style- I just seem to like what I like and don’t really like a lot of names in general. For girls we like:
    Caroline
    Isabel
    Elizabeth
    Celia
    Avery

    I am open to all suggestions! I just don’t want a super common name or anything too out of the ordinary. I also don’t want a name people will hate or our child will hate us for! Lol

    Those are some great selections! I especially like Caroline and Celia. It seems like you lean toward more unusual classic and biblical names, which is generally my preference as well (with some exceptions). Here are a few other suggestions:
    Boys:
    Caleb
    Xavier
    Levi
    Gideon
    Ezekiel
    Isaiah
    Abram
    Miles
    Monroe

    Girls:
    Jillian
    Tessa
    Clara/Clarissa
    Audrey
    Juliet
    Cordelia
    Genevieve
    Viola
    Naomi

    Good luck!!

    Thank you for the suggestions. Of those names, I likes Myles, but my friend’s little boy is Myles. They are all great names but as you can see, I have trouble finding a name that I can actually see myself using. :( (

    i like it. but it doesnt sound very manly. like its great for a baby and a little boy. i prefer other br names like brandon, bryce, brett, brennan. i think they age better. but i think brody is a perfectly good name and id like it on other people. ive only heard one boy named brody.

    I’m not a big fan. I do like Josiah though!
