Sounds American to me.

US Marshall in New Mexico.

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:14:49

Oh sad this is the only name we both like hmm

I like it. I wouldn't use it but I like it, if that makes sense. It makes me think of 80s/early 90s US movies. I don't think I've ever met a Cody tbh!

RiverTam Tue 08-Dec-15 20:20:46

Go for it if you both like it. You'll always get those who sneer at any name that sounds American (why??) but it's a nice enough name.

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:24:19

I really like American names - they're always more unusual here, but don't sound dated... smile

AnnaMarlowe Tue 08-Dec-15 20:25:22

For a boy or girl?

OTheHugeManatee Tue 08-Dec-15 20:26:16

Makes me think of Toady on Neighbours confused

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:26:33

A boy

mydogeatsnutstoo Tue 08-Dec-15 20:27:11

Presume for a boy. It sounds American, not a name I particularly like but it's not awful.

BloodyDogHairs Tue 08-Dec-15 20:27:42

Whaaaa I have a Cody, I really shouldn't read anymore.

CordeliaFrost Tue 08-Dec-15 20:41:05

Well I love it OP, but then I'm someone who was American-born, and has an American-sounding name.

I hate the snobbery that surrounds such names on MN, although it tends to be an extension of general snobbery towards anything American on here, which I've seen from time to time.

If you love it, go for it.

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:43:45

I don't know why people on here hate American names!

Pinklily1 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:49:45

Its chavvy.

LeaLeander Tue 08-Dec-15 20:52:11

Here in the US it's pretty trailer-trash. Automatically makes one think of Budweiser beer, camoflage attire, pickup trucks and such.

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 20:53:17

I don't see how it's chavvy hmm

BloodyDogHairs Tue 08-Dec-15 21:13:53

OP if you like the name use it, I'm now going to google Chav to see if I tick all the boxes wine

Wharm14 Tue 08-Dec-15 21:15:53

Oh, Cody was on my list as one of the only two myself and DH agreed on. Might re-think it now as well! sad

JennyOnAPlate Tue 08-Dec-15 21:17:40

I know a coby. I prefer that.

Angelto5 Tue 08-Dec-15 21:23:03

I like it but just realised the only one I know is a girl!(from the uk)

The name reminds me of my childhood,watching the rescuers down under. smile

DramaAlpaca Tue 08-Dec-15 22:02:59

It's not to my taste, but if you like it why not?

It's very bad mannered to describe a name as chavvy, IMO.

Belle9985 Tue 08-Dec-15 22:03:22

Is Noah or Cody better? Sister is Darcy smile

Love it. Know one in his teens.
