Brody seems to be the name at the top of our list for this baby if it's a boy. I had just assumed it would be Spelt Brody........DH had just assumed it would be Brodie
Thoughts??? Middle name Joseph if that makes any difference

I would go for Brody for a boy (and Brodie if it was for a girl!). I think the ie is more feminine.

For a boy Brody, for a girl Brodie.

Yeah I agree Brody, I also feel Brodie is for a girl.
First time pregnant ever, and 40. So damn happy

Can't say I have a preference, but every Brodie I have known, boy or girl is spelt that way.
I have never met a Brody with a y.

I think you are both right. My first thought is Brodie Holland who is definitely male.
Maybe the Brody spelling is more popular in America? I like the name and have no preference though I do prefer the girl spelling to be Brodie (for no reason). With the sibling names perhaps Brody looks best?

I'd spell it Brody.
It's purely a what-I'm-used-to-bias. Brody is ranked #83 in the US (where I am from) and Brodie is #537. I tend to, with a couple exceptions, find the -ie suffix fairly feminine.

Brody for a boy. I am on lots of american forums and it seems popular there and I've only ever seen it spelt that way for a boy. I have always liked it but dh didn't so it got crossed off our lists.

Ive met several Brodie's who were male and one who was female, I dont recall any Brody's of either sex.
To me it is more a boys name, although I accept it can be used for girls.
I think the spelling is different by location as as well as gender- so maybe in USA it is more commonly Brody but in Australia, or at least SA, it is more commonly Brodie.
I agree that in general ie tends to be a female name ending - but I would go with Brodie for a boy too. Although I dont really think it matters either way, either spelling would be fine.

Brody for a boy - Brodie for a girl. I wouldn't use it for a girl in any case.
