"I love the name. My husband is Rodney. I call him by rod or Rodney. It suits him. He's extremely strong physically and mentally. I think of a "rod" as a piece of steel or very strong material. That's my baby😚" Jun. 29, 2018:

"My Name is Rodney. My sisters and most of my past girlfriends always thought it was fun to call me Rodney but everyone else calls me Rod. I do often tell people my name and in response, they call me all kinds of things. Rob, Ron, and I've even had people mistake it as Rodge. Even when someone has my name right in front of them in my email, they still sometimes call me Rob. That part I hate, but I sincerely LOVE my name because it's unique. I would hate to be another Rob or Ron (no offense to Rob's and Ron's). I just like that no one else has my name. I have met a few Rod's over the years, although it is rare. I'm 6'3" (190.5cm) and athletic, so I've never had anyone make fun of me for my name but occasionally people will say it like a nickname in fun, like Rodney Dangerfield, Hot-Rod, Rod Stewart, etc. All things considered, I couldn't be happier with my name. It's as unique as I am :) Plus, girls have always liked my name. Maybe not all but most seem to. My wife likes it but she's from Russia, what does she know? Haha. I actually highly recommend it to anyone thinking of naming their kid Rod(ney)." Mar. 6, 2015:
"I am a 32 year old male with this name. I love it. In fact, I have always liked it. Even as a child I thought it was a nice name. It never gets misspelled! It is fairly uncommon. I rarely meet other Rodneys. I have shortened it to Rod which I don't think was necessarily a good idea because now it is often confused with Rob. My wife likes my name too. Who knows? Maybe we will have to have a Rodney Jr. sometime! :)" Jan. 22, 2011:
"This is my husbands name, he usually goes by Rod, he likes the name and hasn't had any issues with spelling or anything, and also hasn't met anyone else with that name yet." Jan. 17, 2006:

"Rodney is my name, I go by Rod. My brothers name is Robert. I always get called Rob. I hate my name, always have. When I was younger I asked my mother why she did this to me and have always wanted to change it. So I named my son Jack." Feb. 3, 2013:

"although I am a Rodney I am called Rob or Ron 80% of the time. I have never liked my name and tried to go by my middle name Vance but I had too many people around from my younger years that it never took. they had too much fun calling me Rodney. Plus all the nicknames like Rodney Dangerfield, Hot Rod, Rod the Bod, (younger days), Welding Rod, etc... I am almost 50 so its too late to come up with a different moniker now." Nov. 30, 2018:
