Brodie with full name Broderick

Really not keen on Broderick, sorry

No to Dylan. Showing my age but that name reminds me of dopey Dylan in 1970's Magic Roundabout. Brodie is nice.

Ooh I like both. Around here Dylan is very very popular so I'd go for Brodie.

Dylan all the way. A friend called her son Brodie. I looked it up at the time and I'm pretty sure it means 'ditch'. hmm

Dylan. Brodie is so , so popular!
Do you like any other names?

How is Brodie so popular?? It sounds like a cross between bogey and grody, such horrible connotations.

Never heard of Brodie. Dylan for me.

Maybe it's popular because not everyone thinks like you?

Brodie is extraordinary popular in the states.
I'm hearing it here on a regular basis now.
Unfortunately, the only owners of this name ( that l know) are badly behaved.
I have a child with a name scorend on MN - but l chose it before the spelling became mutilated & another letter added! ;)

We are thinking of Brodie (or Brody) for our baby. It's a traditional Scottish name (and we are Scottish). People took the name after an area called Brodie (and there's a Castle Brodie still standing). It means either ditch or fortified wall which sounds better! I don't know a single Brodie or Brody, nor have I heard of any but it may be much more popular in other parts of the country.
Saying all that I suggested it after Chief Brody in Jaws (rather jokingly) as that's our favourite film.

I wouldn't have put Dylan on my list as we're wanting to stick with something traditionally Scottish but it's a nice name.

Go with either. Or have one as a middle name?
