Leading with “bro,” at first glance this genial, sporty name appears to follow the footsteps of another one-O wonder: Cody. But Brody owes its success to a name that shares a much closer resemblance: Brady. According to Social Security data, Brody has outranked Brady since passing it for the first time in 2008. Only time will tell if Bodhi will be the next Cody, Brady or Brody. For now, Brody and Brodie can be used as nicknames for Broderick and Brodrick. Athletes Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton named a daughter Brody Jo.
