Roadie? Thoughts?

I was playing around with Roads/Road as a name, and I come up with Roadie. I looked it online and I dont particularly mind the band association. What are your thoughts? Is it too weird to be used?

*Just collecting :slight_smile:

TIA

I’m not keen sounds like a dogs name. I would prefer just Roads as a middle name. Something like Phoebe Roads would be cute

I think Rhodes/Roads would be cute, in the middle especially, but Roadie isn’t for me.

I think it’s cool as a nickname, but I don’t love it as a full name. I also much prefer it on a boy.

in addition to the band association, Roadie is also a frequent term for a beer/alcoholic beverage taken in the car for a trip. She probably won’t hear that until college, though (if it’s even a popular term by then).

I love the name Rhodes. I think that nn would be cute for when she’s little, but she might outgrow it (i.e. Meg vs. Meggie)

To me it just sounds a bit odd, sorry. If I came across Roadie IRL I would probably assume that it’s a nickname.

I have to admit, Roadie isn’t really a positive term where I live? It’s still associated with bands, but it’s more along the lines of a groupie, I guess?

Rhodes would be really cool though!

I find it a little odd to be honest. It sounds like someone who tags along and I’m not sure that’s quite what you want from your name

Brodie, Bridie or Jolie might be similar choices

I don’t think it’s usable as a name.

It’s honestly not my favorite. I associate it with band fandoms or long, boring road trips, to be honest. When I say it out loud though, it makes me think of Rhodey (War Machine) from the Marvel movies. He’s a dude but I think that spelling is a little better.

I also think Rhodes is super cool!

It’s not my style, but I don’t think it’s awful. Some other names that come to mind are: Remington “Remi”, Romi, Bohdi, Sailor, Riley, or Romilly?

Hope this helps!

Rhodie is an actual name. It’s a Greek/Latin name, a variant of Rhoda and it means ‘rose’/‘from Rhodes’.

I agree that Rhodes or even Roads is super cool, but i think that Roadie has some negative connotations. I thought it meant something else no one has mentioned but it’s def too inappropriate to say and maybe i’m wrong lol

Honestly, I don’t think it’s great as a given name. All I think of is the quite negative image of those people who tag along with a touring band (like that movie that Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn are in where they sleep with all the musicians! Entertaining movie, but not what I’d want to be named after).

BUT I do really love the name Rhodes, and can definitely see Rhodie/Roadie used as a nickname no problem.

Like @CecilyG said my first thought is a slang term for a sex act so I would definitely advise against.

I’m not a fan of Roadie. What about [name_f]Rhodia[/name_f] instead?
