The more I say it, the more I like it.
I think it's lovely and I like it as it's not in the top 200, some opinions when I've sounded it out have been quite negative, Jodie Marsh, chavy etc..

Mn opinions please...

Love it.
You're right it's not high in the popularity charts, makes it more unique.
It's nice to have a name that it's shared by half the class or school or area where you live.
Not weird, not too posh... thumbs up from me!

I quite like it. It's one of those names I thought was impossibly glamorous when I was about 10 years old.

I much prefer it to all that Harriet/Florence malarkey that's everywhere at the moment.

Sorry I don't like it. It was quite a common name in my year at school (im 30) and I grew up in a place where they pronounce it 'jodeh' so that's all I think about when I hear it!

I think it's rather sweet and not at all common nowadays.

No. Jodie is pure 70s/80s to me, and not in a good way. Sisters would be Tammy and Kelly.

callamia Sat 10-Jan-15 15:18:25

I knew a few in the 80s too - I think of it as quite an 80s name. It is quite sweet, but I'm not sure it's quite ready for a return yet. Having said that, Jodie Kidd wears it well - so maybe I'm talking nonsense.

I really like it but i'm another one who thinks names like Margaret/Mabel and Ethel are awful even though they are very popular locally.

EeekNumber4 Sat 10-Jan-15 16:29:09

I know lots of Jodie's in their mid thirties so it's a very 70's/80's name to me.

EmpressOfJurisfiction Sat 10-Jan-15 16:31:13

Jodie Foster! Yes, great name.

DramaAlpaca Sat 10-Jan-15 16:33:21

I was at school with one I couldn't stand so it has negative connotations for me. That aside, it's quite a nice name.

Jeggie Sat 10-Jan-15 16:43:54

Great name!

Sophronia Sat 10-Jan-15 19:30:54

It's my cousin's name, she's 14. I'm not particularly keen on it but it's very sweet on her.

Mintyy Sat 10-Jan-15 19:33:00

I think it's a lovely name and I immediately thought of the wonderful Jodie Foster (not Jodie Marsh) when I saw it in your thread title.

johendy Sat 10-Jan-15 21:19:03

I really like it. What about Jody?

manicinsomniac Sat 10-Jan-15 21:38:04

I like it. And I don't know any younger than mid 20s so it will be nice and original.

flowerbum Sat 10-Jan-15 22:22:32

My best pal at school was jodie, a beautiful person inside and out. I think it's due a revival!

Pixa Sat 10-Jan-15 22:28:35

I like it, but then I would. wink

Penguito Sat 10-Jan-15 22:39:08

DS has 2 Jodie's in his nursery class!

rockinrobintweet Sat 10-Jan-15 23:25:12

haven't heard of a Jodie since school. gorgeous name- go for it!

Violettatrump Sun 11-Jan-15 07:49:06

Not keen on Jodie but Josie is lovely and short for Josephine.

Violettatrump Sun 11-Jan-15 07:50:32

It's of an era like Joanne.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 11-Jan-15 09:55:45

It's terribly dated.

shakemysilliesout Sun 11-Jan-15 14:51:45

I'd rather a Jodie/ Kelly revival than a Pamela and Barbara revival. Because jodie is 80s it seems more fun to me than Ethel and Mavis.

maggiethemagpie Sun 11-Jan-15 16:14:23

My friend called her baby Jodie. I can't say I was that keen on it. It does sound a bit dated to my ears.
