Comments and insights on the name Broderick: | Edit

We named our third boy Broderick and to be honest it should have been our first choice. It is a very strong masculine name, unique enough to be the only one at his school but doesn't sound totally made up. Brodie for short is easily recognised as a mainstream name, which is handy when people ask his name.

Personal experiences with the name Broderick: | Edit

I was inspired by a friend from school who was a great footballer, Russell Broderick, with the modern popularity of using surnames as first names, it seemed to fit.
