What do you think to boy name Brodie? (Scottish spelling as opposed to Brody american sp.) Husband is dead keen on this which makes me like it even more as he hasn't shown much enthusiasm for anything else. However, I also like Daniel, to be shortened to Danny. He thinks Daniel is a bit of a wuss's name!

Love Brodie, very nice!

Littlefish Thu 02-Dec-10 21:43:19

Really don't like it. Sounds more like a girl's name to me.

I've not heard it before, but I quite like Brodie. A little different but masculine sounding to my ears.

Dan/Daniel is a little dull imo.

Much prefer brodie!

Feminine sounding. Reminds me of Broderie Anglaise.

Much prefer Daniel, it's a classic boys' name and not feminine at all.

DD has a Brodie in her class. He is very much a boy.

Brodie makes me think of a bronzed, handsome surfer type. Actually, wasn't that Patrick Swayze's character' name in Point Break?? [Light bulb goes on]

Anyhoo, I like it. Scottish spelling is nice and it's different.

Hmmmm do I know you I wonder? This has happened before.

Yuk - Prime of Miss Jean Brodie springs to mind

asmallbunchofflowers Thu 02-Dec-10 22:38:05

Festive - Let's not enquire. I know some RL friends are on here, but would find it too weird if I discovered their posting names. wink

There are a few round here - it's no big deal. I love the name, Scottish enough without being too tartan trews and shortbread.

ChippingIn Thu 02-Dec-10 22:52:43

I love Brodie.

iwastooearlytobeayummymummy Thu 02-Dec-10 22:52:46

LetThereBeRock Thu 02-Dec-10 23:03:47

I really don't like it. I much prefer Daniel.

lowrib Thu 02-Dec-10 23:36:23

Great name, I love it.

Thanks for your help everyone! x

My excellent friend from New Zealand is called Brodie, so it mostly reminds me of an international jet-setting professional with a fabulous SEG life! (Possible downsides: jealous friends on MN.)

Does that help?

Much prefer Brodie to Daniel.

frankenfanny Fri 03-Dec-10 10:48:02

I love this name. V Scottish and versatile. I know both boy and girl Brodies and they both suit it!

LolaBellsAllTheWay Fri 03-Dec-10 11:52:18

Dd2 was going to be brodie but it didn't go with our surname. Dd1 also has a unisex scottish name.

I know 2 of each gender and it suits them all.

I love it.

jellybeans Fri 03-Dec-10 11:54:38

I know a boy Brody and a girl Brody (both spelled like that). It's a nice name.

cumbria81 Fri 03-Dec-10 11:56:49

it's a very girlie sounding name. Not keen.

LolaBellsAllTheWay Fri 03-Dec-10 12:05:03

Cumbria i thought that too as i knew a female brodie first but the two males i know are very masculine, one in his 30s and the other is 2. I also know 2 male lindsays but they both carry it well.
