"My brother, born in 1945, was named Cody because my dad wanted a western-sounding name. We named our son Cody in 1968 because my brother is a great guy. They were Codys before it was cool to be Cody!" May. 5, 2019:

"Cody is just about the best boy's name ever! I may be a little biased because it's my longtime boyfriend's name, but honestly I think it's so great because it doesn't come with any stigma attatched. Some names of popular or infamous people will just never lose the stigma attatched to them. If you give someone that particular name they will forever be associated with the deeds or characteristics of previous persons with the same name, even thought they could be completely different.(IE: when they hear the name adolf most people don't think of a sweet and caring person...) It leaves the page blank and lets "Cody" create his own picture of who he is and what he is like instead of coming with the baggage of alot of expectations. I believe Cody's are free to be themselves and explore more than other named folk because of this." Feb. 16, 2009:
"My son was born in Aug, 1993 and I named him Cody. If anyone is interested, the name is
