which spelling is best for a boy? and any middle name ideas? thanks

I would say Brody but also also like it spelt Brodie (although will probably constantly get "is that Brody with a y or ie!!!)

Neither (sorry - not what you're asking I know sad)

Brody for a boy, Brodie for a girlsmile

Neither, I am thinking homeland connection with terrorist

I don't suppose it makes much difference. It's really not to my taste at all. Do you like surname type names in general? Would you want another one in the middle? Or do you have a family member or friend you'd like to honour? Or a meaning you'd like to include. What other names do you like?

I would pick a strong masculine middle name so that he is easy to identify as a boy when written.

Its a bit of an issue with a unisex name as we have found out!

i wanted something quite traditional for a middle name.

rileylaila5 Thu 07-Nov-13 15:57:28

thankyou yes i would like something strong and masculine for middle name.

I would say Brody for a boy. How about William, George or Alexander for middle name?

Brody.

I'd go with Brodie - as in the surname, clan name and castle.
Probably because I'm Scottish and pedantic.

I'd go with Brody, I absolutely love it.

I'm Sottish too, it's Brodie.

Nope. Brody is a terrorist in Homeland.

How often will you use a middle name anyway. Picking a masculine one won't make any difference.
