Cool Info About Name Brady

Additional name description Brady
Additional name description Brady


Brady has been on the US charts since 1883; although the use of the name was not very common. It's not until the 1990s that Brady begins to show any real promise for the first time. The name eventually makes it to the Top 100 Most Favorite Boys' Names list in 2007 and 2008, but quickly falls off the list. In the last couple of years, the name has reversed course and seems to be showing some decline. Brady's heyday may have come and gone by now, but that just means fewer kids out there have to share this unique underused name. Brady has a "sports-cool" factor going for him thanks to Tom Brady which has likely influenced further use of the name in the 21st century.

My second baby boy is due in a month, and we are naming him Brady. First time I heard of it is from Sex and the City (Miranda's baby). And I found out there are some sports stars with the name Brady too, like Tom Brady, Brady Quinn, etc. It makes the name'sounds sporty, I like that.

12/27/2023 17:55:06

Bradey is a girls name too...make a chart for that...because my name is bradey and I'm a girl.

12/19/2023 11:14:58

My younger'son's name is Bradey, and I love it. It totally fits him. He is blonde, blue-eyed, and the funniest little guy. And the thing is, the name means "broad chested", and he inherited my Irish family's(Hanna) very broad chest. The name really fits!!

11/15/2023 03:11:06

I have only meet 3 Bradys besides myself and I actule graduated from High School with an'ther Brady. I find this name to be very unique.

09/26/2023 16:10:04

This is most certainly a name for old people. But if you are not old and your name is Edith, fear not. There is a way to change your name for a reason, and that reason is generally parents with no better judgement.

09/17/2023 17:20:06

I do like the name Brady - It's actually my son's name. The only issue I have with it is the nickname "Braid." I also would like it very much if people would stop stealing boy names for their girls!

09/17/2023 01:27:54

We have a Caleigh and we pronounce it Ka-lee... Because we also have a Caleb and it doesn't have a y anywhere in there... So we pronounce the front of their names the'same.

09/09/2023 12:43:24

07/23/2023 12:05:28

I would have made fun of it. Brady bunch. It's corky.

06/21/2023 03:02:56

I absolutly love the name Brady! It reminds me of a buff, sweet, caring, athletic, and handsome young man, and I will defen'tly be the name of my son in'the future, "Brady Beck " after a cute guy on vine.

05/26/2023 10:10:34

I named my son Brady. My great-great-great grandparents surname was Brady. My husband suggested the name and I told him that it was a family last name, but was so far back that it didn't matter. It's a special name to us because of that.

04/26/2023 00:27:00

My son's name is Brady Ericson. Brady was my great grandfather's first name, and we love the name. Our son is defin'tely "spirited" and adorable. Once we decided on'the name it felt right.

04/14/2023 23:39:22

I am a 27 yo female, Brady, and It's a great distin'tive unisex name. But the name'seems to be getting more trendy 'boy' all the time -- I saw it in'the Pottery Barn catalog the other day!

04/14/2023 09:50:36

My name is Brady,I was born in 1982.When I was a kid I hated my name.Everyone called me Brady Bunch-that I took as an insult.As an adult I like my name.I often'tell people to remember my name by thinking of the Brady Bunch.Brady is n't a common name,and I rarely meet someone with the'same name.

04/02/2023 11:18:06

I love the name brady n't only because it is my name, but because it is so unike. In my life i have only encountered one other brady! The problem is that alot of people pernounce it wrong and often call me bradly, because they think it must be spelt wrong when shown on paper. It is a forign name to many people.

03/19/2023 17:51:08

We named our second son Caden, I had never heard of this name before and since my great grandfather's name was Hayden we decided it was perfect. My first son's name is Connor and my daughter's name is Caitlyn. Caden fits him he is a strong warrior for sure, oh well if it has taken off in popularity. The'same thing happened when I named my first Connor!

03/04/2023 07:33:08

i love the name the guy that likes me and i like him back well that is name i love him

03/01/2023 06:57:42

i just named my new born brady. i think its a very cool name for a boy.

02/26/2023 22:49:44

This has been a difficult name for me. It is more popular now than when i was born, but the English speaking world has traditionally gad trouble pronouncing it and ex-AY-vyuhr just doesn't sound as nice as the French zahv-YAY or the'spanish Hahv-Yair.

02/15/2023 04:24:06

I think It's a wonderful name for both a boy and a girl. I'm going to name my second child Brady regardless of gender. For a boy, It's fun and athletic sounding (I guess because of athletes with this as their first or last name). For a girl, It's feminine and tomboyish at the'same time -kinda that Madison appeal without all the popularity. My name is Erin which is also a boy's name (spelled differently of course). People always comment on how much they like the name. I think it has encouraged a certain stren'th only having a "boys" name can do. I Love it too!

02/14/2023 08:07:24

I just LOVE the name Brady, I am going to name my first son Brady. Great name!

02/12/2023 19:58:30

I love it... my son just turned 9 months old, and he is named for Brady Quinn.. former QB of the ND Fighting Irish!

01/30/2023 03:59:42

My name is Brady. Where I'm from it is n't very common and when I get a substitute teacher I always get called Bradly. So I'mainly just tell people my name is Brad.

01/29/2023 04:46:40

My second son is named Brady. His dad was a big baseball fan, we first heard the name watching a game Brady Anderson was playing in!

01/08/2023 05:03:08

last year I liked a guy named Brady. We went on our first date a few months ago. It was awesome! We had lunch together and played games together.

12/12/2022 12:04:50

My name is Brady(of course) and i like it, i do n't like it when it is used for girls... and i also beli've that It'should be spelled the way it I id(of course) to do other wise is to make it a little girly.I have n't met any other person named Brady and I like this way. it is fun, but because it is n't as common as othe's you(or your son) will have to spell it often; on'the bright side you can cool lines like "Brady like the Brady bunch , but n't as cool" or "Brady like Tom Brady"

12/07/2022 00:25:06

My husband is a Brady and I love the name! It is a great name for all ages...and timeless.

11/07/2022 17:43:48

My 8 month old sons name is Brady and I love the name. i've known for many years that that was the name I would use if ever had a little boy.

09/01/2022 17:18:00

Brady is a guy I know at school. I like him he's so cute I'm in love with him. My name is Victoria Short and no I am n't short. If Brady Heldt is reading this right now it is true. See you at school cutie!

07/09/2022 02:06:18

I read a comment saying Brady should only be used as a boys name and I disagree completely. I am a girl and my name is spelled Bradie. I absolutely love my name and get complimented on it all the time. I get called Brandy a lot and I just laugh and correct them. Bradie is a great girls name. Thanks mom!

03/24/2022 09:56:06

i named my son Brady in 2017. i thought it was creative and different...came home from the hospital only to find out there were a few of them on popular TV shows. ugh! so everyone asks if had been a big fan of All My Children, etc...It's annoying because for me it was just creativity. either way, we get tons of comments on what a cute name it is!! I'm so happy i chose the name. to me It's still unique...although we've met a few other Brady's in'the meantime.

12/03/2021 03:57:54
