For the 'different, not weird' baby namer

Moniker Morsel: Todd

on January 7, 2014

Todd is cool and cute.  The name ages well and certainly fits the criteria of not terribly common, but far from obscure. 


Origin of Todd: Todd stems from an English surname meaning ‘fox.’  I imagine this is why it was used in one of my favorite children’s movies, The Fox and the Hound!

Notable Todd’s: Chef Todd English, musician Todd Rundgren, children’s book author Todd Parr

Suitable Sibling Names:

Tia, Taryn, Tessa, Bria, Kate

Scott, Chad, Eric, Gregory, Brady


Todd Everett, Todd Emmanuel

Nathaniel Todd, Oliver Todd


My thoughts: I love Todd for his versatility and simplicity. I also love secret nature names.  My only hesitation would be the possibility of mean nicknames like Odd Todd…what do you think?

  1. This is my dad’s name, born in 1961. I can’t really say if I like it or if I’m just used to it. His last name starts with M so he often gets confused for a Tom instead.

    I like Todd. I don’t *love* it — maybe because I don’t have any strong associations (friends, celebs, etc.)? — but I also don’t have anything against it.
