descendant of Cuidightheach
With its connection to cowboys and other icons of Western culture, Cody is a name that turns a boy into a man. Okay, not really, but there’s no denying its macho sensibility. It’s got a softer side too, recognized by some parents of girls who have given the name to their daughters. Cody, with a Gaelic pedigree derived from the surname Ó Cuidighthigh, meaning “descendant of Ó Cuidighthigh,” was wildly popular in the early 1990s all over the US and, though not a top draw anymore, is still a favorite in Alaska and Wyoming.
