Meaning of name Brady:
There are several etymological origins of the name Brady, so in the background. Firstly, the name probably originated as an Anglo-Irish surname, from the Gaelic “MacBrádaigh” meaning 'son/descendant of Bradach' and said to mean 'spirit'. The word "Bradach" is of uncertain origin, but could also be a contracted form of the Gaelic "brághadach" which translates to 'large or broad-chested.' It could also come from the Irish “Bradan” meaning 'salmon' or the English “broad + ey” meaning 'island.' The Brady surname dates back to medieval times and is still wildly common in Northern Ireland. Brady as a first name became popular primarily in the United States and Australia.
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.
