what do you think of the name Brodie for a boy? as brother to Riley and Laila? thanks smile)

Police Chief Brody was the first thing that came to mind.

It sounds very American. I don't really like it but its not awful, just not my cup of brew

I like it but reminds me of Brody Jenner, reality show star.

I like it! It makes me think of an Australian surfer type!

Homeland

I really like it. Considered it for my ds. The lady in the bed opposite me in hospital when I had him called her son Brodie, but she was Scottish and the way she pronounced it was beautiful. I didn't think it had the same charm said in our West Country accent! grin

UriGHOULer Wed 30-Oct-13 20:04:34

I like it.

Wouldn't be my choice. But I don't think it is completely outlandish, and if you like it, then go for it!

LostMarbles99 Wed 30-Oct-13 21:34:50

Homeland fan!

creepypenisreaper Wed 30-Oct-13 21:37:06

Lovely name, it sounds Scottish (maybe because of Brodie Country Fayre?)

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Wed 30-Oct-13 21:38:14

It means 2nd son, I know a few but not babies,all from about 5 to 11.
Not my choice but a nice name.

Im not keen. Sorry

Homeland

I like it. But maybe that's got something to do with knowing two very nice Brodies. I'm in Scotland. smile

(One teenager and the other in his early 40s, I think)

AgathaPinchBottom Wed 30-Oct-13 22:45:33

I know the best, kindest, handsomest guy ever called Brodie. He has the best soul of anyone I've ever known. I think it's a fantastic name!

BeeBawBabbity Wed 30-Oct-13 22:47:31

I think it's a girl's name. I'm scottish. I do really like it though.

ScoutJemAndBoooooooooooo Wed 30-Oct-13 23:18:06

I know a few Scottish boys with this name, very nice.

kissmyshineymetalass Wed 30-Oct-13 23:22:19

The only Brodie I've met was female

Isthisstormcomingorwhat Wed 30-Oct-13 23:28:02

I don't like it, sorry. Too American sounding, like Brody Jenner

funnyossity Wed 30-Oct-13 23:29:22

I know a boy. It's nice I think!

I like it, but I have a definite crush on Damien Lewis, who plays Sgt Brodie in Homeland.

Littlecherublegs Thu 31-Oct-13 08:10:32

First thought was Homeland too!

It's not a name I would choose but it's nice enough and goes with your other DCs names.

I like it.
But Brodie and Riley make me think of the lightning seeds (not a bad thing).
