Brodey, also spelled Brody or Brodie, is a boy’s name and surname of Scottish and Irish origin. It may have originated as a habitational surname for someone from the lands of Brodie in Moray, Scotland. However, it’s unknown whether the clan of Brodie took their name from the land, or vice versa. The name may also derive from the Scottish-Gaelic words brothaigh (rampart, fortification) or brothach (muddy place). Alternatively, it may be related to the Old Irish word broth, meaning “ditch.” Brody is a popular first name for boys in the US, ranking at 333 in the baby name charts in 2021. Brodey, on the other hand, is a rarer spelling of the name, making it a great choice if you’re looking for a more unusual alternative.
