[ 2 syll. bra-dy, br-ady ] The baby boy name Brady is sometimes used as a girl name. It is pronounced as BREY-Diy- †. Brady is used chiefly in the English and Irish languages, and it is derived from Celtic and Old English origins. From Celtic roots, its meaning is descendant of Brádach, large-chested. The first name is from the Gaelic surname 'O Brádaigh' meaning 'descendant of Brádach'. Brádach is an Old Irish nickname probably derived as a short form of Brághadach meaning 'large-chested', and ultimately from the element 'brágha' (meaning chest, throat). The popularity of the first name has been boosted by the successful US television comedy series The Brady Bunch (1969-1974) based around a large blended family bearing the surname Brady.

In addition, Brady is a diminutive form of the name Braden (English and Irish) in the English language.
