  • "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 strength only having a "boys" name can do. I Love it too!" Jun. 22, 2007: Report as inappropriate
