Origin:Place-name from Dutch
Description:It may be the hippest of hispter neighborhoods, but as a baby name Brooklyn is now on the decline: down from a peak of 120 births for boys in 1999, and over 7000 births for girls in 2011. The most famous male bearer of this name is the eldest child of David and Victoria Beckham, now a successful model and photographer in his own right. Brooks would be an on-trend short form.
Description:Extreme makeover: Brooklyn has gone from jokey Borough Boy name in the 1990s to the leading girls' name starting with B. The status of New York's Brooklyn as hipster heaven is ironic as few bona fide Brooklyn hipsters would choose this name.
