- Personal experiences with the name Cody: | Edit
I'm a school teacher and every Cody that I've had has been the "rough-and-tumble" sort.
My son is named Cody and he is very "rough and tumble" always has been.
My younger brother is named Cody. I would describe him as super nice, giving, and very much a family guy.
My boyfriends name is Cody and he is far from "rough and tumble". He was known as the "nice guy" in high school. Everyone loved him. He's someone who stays away from the party scene. Doesn't ever drink or do drugs. He's very motivated, good work ethic. In College now for engineering.
The Cody I know is definitely a "rough and tumble" sort but also very nice and friendly.
