Comments and insights on the name Brody: | Edit

I'm in my 30's I'm female and my name is Brodie. I can tell you from experience that I was never
really teased about my name.. however nobody ever got it right! I was always a Bettie, Rodie? etc..
Growing up I was annoyed by most people not listening when they heard my name. It still happens but for
the most part I love my name and I think boy names for girls are cute! I have a 5 year old Daughter and I named her Charlie! and no it's not short for anything... That's another one I got asked all the time.. open your ears people!!!

Too masculine

I a female in my mid 20's, unfortunately called Brody and I really dislike the name as a girl. Without meeting me, people assume I am a boy, people calling asking for 'Mr Surname',being accidentally put in boys devisions in sporting comps etc. I was never teased at school but I always wish I had a feminine name because I always have to explain it and it just feels like a struggle all the time and makes professional situations sometimes awkward. I joke that I am the youngest of 4 girls and my parents were really hoping for a boy..
My name gets confused alot for Bree or Brady and spelt Brodie all the time.
Brody is not adrogenous, it means brother, second son or ditch. No girl wants a name that means ditch. It's not a lovely girl name, it's not unique, it's not cute. It's a boy's name and it sucks

Personal experiences with the name Brody: | Edit

My 5 year old daughter's name is Brody, and I have been told so many times that naming a girl that is just setting them up to get made fun of. Im not sure how, since there are lots of "boy" names that are used for girls without any issues. I love her name, and I think it fits her perfectly. She is quite popular in school and no kids have ever had an issue with her name...only adults that felt the need to call her "Grody Brody" and give me grief about naming her that.

I've also got a little girl named Brody, and I love her name. I've had people call her 'rosie' and 'brady', but to be honest thats just peoples ignorance and not listening! I've heard that its quite a common girls name in Australia. I think its unique, without being ridiculous.
