Rody vs Roger

I've seen the name "Rody" crop up occasionally and it seems to match someone who died as a "Roger". Any idea were these names used interchangeably?

Don't forget, Roger can also be spelt Rodger so that could account for the shortening to Rody.

Rody in my family is Rodolphus. Entirely separate from Latin versions in Church registers...that's what the lads were called. Yikes.

I have several Rogers in my surname line- usually Roger, but one Ruadhrai (early 1900's). There also are Rodgers in a female ancestor's family and they are frequently are called 'Rody' - also, that family is differentiated in Griffiths by the suffix Rody. It seems common in Tipp & Limerick.

I always thought that Ruadhrai was Rory.

Didn’t Ruahdrai also get anglicized as Roderick?
