Brody Jenner reality star who is very very dreamy to look at! wink

Brodie with an ie I think of Brodie from the Kate Atkinson books, with a Y I would think homeland though it did not occur to me until others said it. It is a good name I think

Thanks Scout that's actually one of the names I really like just trying to convince DH grin

Rosencrantz Thu 31-Oct-13 23:08:26

It matches your other DCs names very well!

ScoutJemAndBoooooooooooo Thu 31-Oct-13 18:33:27

Call his soon to be sister Iona, that goes well with Brody.

I like it, I think it's more scottish than anything.

feather that's exactly what I was going to say! I even put Brodie on my list after watching mall rats smile

I like it. But if I were to use it, I'd use it as a girls name, named after my teen punk idol, Brody Amrmstrong!

Not to my taste, but it goes well with your other names.

I know of a 4YO girl Brodie.

Reminds me of Mallrats. Good film, that!

My DS is Brody so I obviously love it. Am Scottish but spelt it with a y on the end. I'm regularly complimented on his name and it just suits him so well. Struggling with what to call his soon to be here sister though! shock

It's my son's name. There's a Brodie Castle about 60 miles away from me. I have heard of it being used for girls and boys, although I've only met one or two same named boys and no girls. Nice Scottish name.

InkleWinkle Thu 31-Oct-13 08:20:39

It's a Scottish name.

I know 3 boys, all under 7 called this. I think it's a nice name.

callamia Thu 31-Oct-13 08:16:39

I like it.
But Brodie and Riley make me think of the lightning seeds (not a bad thing).

Littlecherublegs Thu 31-Oct-13 08:10:32

First thought was Homeland too!

It's not a name I would choose but it's nice enough and goes with your other DCs names.

KateCroydon Thu 31-Oct-13 07:57:09

I like it, but I have a definite crush on Damien Lewis, who plays Sgt Brodie in Homeland.

funnyossity Wed 30-Oct-13 23:29:22

I know a boy. It's nice I think!

Isthisstormcomingorwhat Wed 30-Oct-13 23:28:02

I don't like it, sorry. Too American sounding, like Brody Jenner

kissmyshineymetalass Wed 30-Oct-13 23:22:19

The only Brodie I've met was female

ScoutJemAndBoooooooooooo Wed 30-Oct-13 23:18:06

I know a few Scottish boys with this name, very nice.

BeeBawBabbity Wed 30-Oct-13 22:47:31

I think it's a girl's name. I'm scottish. I do really like it though.

AgathaPinchBottom Wed 30-Oct-13 22:45:33

I know the best, kindest, handsomest guy ever called Brodie. He has the best soul of anyone I've ever known. I think it's a fantastic name!

(One teenager and the other in his early 40s, I think)
