Besides the obvious reference to the giant non-traditional family of the 80s, the Brady Bunch, Brady has blossomed to become a fairly popular name for boys. Its definition is a bit murky, ranging from “broad-eyed” to “broad-chested” to “lives on a broad island”, with “broad” being the tie that binds them all. The name has two elements that modern parents seem to love–boyish charm and a slightly Irish flair (think Camden, Aiden and Connor).
