Meaning:descendant of Brádach, large-chested
Brady is a surname that easily rolls off the tongue (Irish lilt optional) as a unisex first name. It’s from the Gaelic “Brádaigh,” meaning “descendant of Brádach.” But “large chested” is also part of its meaning because “Brádach” is likely a shorter version of “Brághadach,” which means “large chested.” Several sports figures have the first name Brady, including former NFL quarterback Brady Quinn and former baseball player Brady Anderson. But by far the most famous Brady is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
