Not sure what the reading night be, but it would be trivial with a formula.

Why VBA?

What about this? The code will prompt you to select a range on the sheet and then populate it with Odd or Even.
Sub PopulateRangeWithOddEven()
Dim rng As Range, cell As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set rng = Application.InputBox("Select the range to be populated.", "Select Range!", Type:=8)
On Error GoTo 0

If rng Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "You didn't select any range.", vbExclamation
    Exit Sub
End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each cell In rng
    If WorksheetFunction.IsOdd(cell.Row) And WorksheetFunction.IsOdd(cell.Column) Then
        cell.Value = "Odd"
    ElseIf WorksheetFunction.IsEven(cell.Row) And WorksheetFunction.IsEven(cell.Column) Then
        cell.Value = "Even"
    End If
Next cell
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hi all! I will be leaving this question open for a while longer if anyone has any alternative codes :)
In that case, I'd say the code above is just about exactly what you want.

And since you asked about nested loops, here's an approach that shows that, iterating over each row in the range, and within each row looks at each column one by one.

Sub PopulateRangeWithOddEven()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim r As Long
    Dim c As Long
    Set rng = Range("A1:G10")


    For r = 1 To rng.Rows.Count
        For c = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
            Select Case (r And 1) + (c And 1)
                Case 2
                    rng.Cells(r, c) = "Odd"
                Case 0
                    rng.Cells(r, c) = "Even"
            End Select

End Sub

I am trying to write a nested “FOR… NEXT” loop
Try this:
Sub Fill_Odd_Even()
    Dim r As Range
    Dim ri As Long
    Dim ci As Long
    Dim rmax As Long
    Dim cmax As Long
    Set r = Range("A1:W23")
    rmax = r.Rows.Count
    cmax = r.Columns.Count
    For ri = 1 To rmax Step 2
        For ci = 1 To cmax Step 2
            Cells(ri, ci).Value = "Odd"
            If ri + 1 > rmax Or ci + 1 > cmax Then
                Cells(ri + 1, ci + 1).Value = "Even"
            End If
        Next ci
    Next ri
End Sub
