"My name is Jody I'm from Canada . I like being named Jody a different name but you don't see all the time." Jan. 12, 2017:
"I'm a Jody and have always despised my name. To me it lacks elegance, substance, and history. It sounds like an empty teeny-bopper name. Bubbleheaded. Doesn't help that I get called Judy a lot, or that with the Y-spelling it's a common redneck/Republican man's name in the Southern US. I just don't ID with this name at all and I envy those who appreciate it! Wish I could feel the same.
Thanks for letting me rant offensively in so many ways, but it's been building for decades. I really wish I had a lovely name." Feb. 7, 2016:
"I love being a JODY but like the other person said it is always spelt wrog- JODIE. I don't know any other Jodys and i love that about myself. I amj unique like my name x" Oct. 6, 2008:
"This is my name. I have met many more men with this name than women. Normally if the person is a women Jody is short for something else. Normally, people will spell my name "Jodi" and when they see my name they normally will call me Judy. I guess they expect a women to be Judy instead of Jody. A positive note is that the name is very much unique and not widely used; I like that about it." Oct. 17, 2007:
"I don't particuarly like the name, but every Jody I have met, has been kind, have a good heart, just a bit perfectionistic." Jun. 14, 2007:
