"I am delighted to be "Jodie". My name is actually "Helen Josephine" and mother invented the nickname because she hated "HJ" which was her name also (long story). Actually, she didn't invent it, but there are few of my age (born 1947) that are "Jodie"; closest would be "Jody", popular in the South with boys." Jun. 3, 2021:
"Hey, my name's Jodie too :) I wasn't so sure if I liked my name growing up but now I'm in my late 20s I love it! It's not too common but I do know a couple of Jodie's around my area. My friends call me Jodes, Jods, Jode, or Jojo. I always get people spell it 'Jodi' which I dislike!" Mar. 12, 2020:
"Hi, my name is Jodie. I was born in 1970. I always felt, for as long as I can remember, that my name was unique and rare because I never knew another girl named Jodie. What made me self conscious in elementary school was that there was a boy named Jody. That made me feel awkward. But now being an adult, I like my name. It?s still rare and unique but so am I! Lol 😘" Sep. 9, 2019:
"My name is Jodie
And I used to hate it because I was bullied for my name because I was the only Jodie at school but now that I've finished school and grown up a bit I'm starting to love my name.
And people always spell it (Jodi) or (Jody) but never Jodie." Nov. 16, 2018:
"My name is Jodie and I love it I was going to be called abbey but then my parents changed there minds and there is 1 other person in my school with the name jodie and I don't like her she is really mean and not good looking and she gives everyone a bad environment around them and with me I'm happy, up beat, friendly, nice to everyone, and the name looks good for who I am. I'm happy that I have the name jodie." Mar. 31, 2017:
"I was born in 1985 and my mom named me Jodie after some girl on a soap opera. I was going to be either Jodie or Heather. At this point I am glad I was named Jodie. There are way too many Heathers lol. I was the only Jodie in my school but there were like 10 Heathers. As of now I still don't know any other people named Jodie. People always spell it wrong! either with a Y or just an I. I do want to mention something my mom told me about the name. She said in the baby name book, where she looked up the name Jodie, it said to spell it Jodie for a girl and Jody for a boy. No one else has said anything about that so I thought I'd share. :) It is nice to know there are other women with the name Jodie and spelled the same as mine!" Apr. 10, 2016:
"I'm called Jodie and it feels like a really, I don't know. Uncomfortable name? Like it just sounds so strange and unusual. But I like being the only Jodie I know. It makes me feel unique." Mar. 22, 2016:
"My names Jodie well it's actually Jodie-May but I love having a name in school that nobody else has! It makes me stand out more!!" Jun. 7, 2014:
"I like that my name (Jodie) is familiar, but not super common. Also, as another Jodie here said, it's girlie but also has a little bit of boy to it which gives it a little cute/fun/nicknamey color. I've only ever known two other Jodies (amazingly) and unlike another commenter's unfortunately experience, we're all very thoughtful and easy going :)-. Though I don't think names are responsible for people's characters..." Oct. 22, 2013:
"I've always been attatched to this name, it's a combination of my grandmothers Joan and Gladys, who knew two such awful names could combine into such a nice one?" Jan. 11, 2010:
"i am called jodie and i think that its an under rated name i am the only jodie in my whole school" Jun. 15, 2009:
"I'm called Jodie too. I really like my name purely because it's known enough that it is familiar but uncommon enough that I don't know any others with the same name. Again, I too have had a few problems with people spelling it Jodi or Jody, but it only makes me more glad to have the spelling which appears to be the least common, as far as I've experienced." Apr. 4, 2009:
"Jody is a boy! So says Mrs Piggle Wiggle and so say I! But other than the frequent misspellings, I love my name. More unusual than Melissa or Elizabeth yet not unrecognizable or hard to pronounce (for an English speaker.) Plus as a bonus it's reminiscent of a dirty word in Spanish. Gotta love that." Jan. 26, 2009:
"As a kid, I wanted to be something more romantic: Isabella or Alexandra or something, but I've really come to love it. It's both girlie and a little unusual and edgy, but still pretty familiar. I don't know any other Jodie's, but almost everyone knows someone who knows another Jodie. Still, almost NO ONE spells it right! "Jodi" is the wrong spelling I get ALL the time (even via email where people can plainly see my name!). I much prefer "Jodie". It just seems more classic -- and reminiscent of the French word for pretty (jolie)." Mar. 2, 2008:
"many times people spell it wrong... Jodi or Jody... the e seems to make it stand out more" Oct. 22, 2006:

"It!s horrid tough and brittle also one I know is ginger. The fact that the Jodie I know (and hate) is ginger probably isn't helping!" Jan. 3, 2015:
"Someone I know is named Jodie and she is annoying stupid judgimental and grabs people I hate this name and wished it was never even thought of" Dec. 18, 2013:

"My name is Jodie, i like it, but all the other Jodie?s I know are so chavvy" Aug. 15, 2018:
"I like my name. It's different yet not unusual.
I've never questioned it before but now though I'm wondering if I should change to my middle name Elizabeth which is timeless as Jodie is getting old (I'm 36 and I think people can guess my age by my name!). I never liked the name Elizabeth growing up so I was glad my first name was Jodie, but now I see the beauty in Elizabeth." Jan. 20, 2016:
"I always feel weird saying my own name. LOL. I do like being named Jodie. My family calls me Jo. Sometimes people hear me wrong when I tell them my name, and they will call me Judy or Julie. When anyone tries to spell it they never spell it correctly, it is always Jody or Jodi. I like the way I spell it though. I like that I have not met very many people with my name. I do wish my middle name was not so common. My middle name is Anne." Sep. 15, 2015:
"Hi, My name is Jodie! I've just turned 46! So when I went to school there was no other person anywhere with the same name! I hated it! I wanted to be a Susan or Jennifer or Julie or some other cool(at the time)name!but no... I was Jodie! Now I still don't really like it, but I suppose it does suit me. It's a little bit different, but then again ..so am I!!!" Jun. 9, 2010:
"I'm a Jodie... and yes, people often mispell my name (Jodi)." Jun. 1, 2008:
"My daughter's name is Jodiee we spell it with two ee so it was a little different from the normal way it spelt we live in the uk
