Definitely Rosalie. Brooklyn has become so popular as a name that Brooke Lynn just looks to me like it's trying to be clever about getting to Brooklyn in two "real" names, and not really succeeding. It also kind of feels like it's cheating your daughter out of a middle name, since it comes across as one name split in two (like if you did Eliza Beth or Anna Belle). Lastly, I genuinely think Rosalie is a very pretty, striking name that sounds nice in the whole combination, while Lynn is a rather dated, generic "filler" middle.

Any chance you could be talked into Rosalie Brooke instead?

Thanks EVie.  I don't need to bother typing out a response because you said everything I was thinking. :)

Rosalie makes for a lovely, interesting middle name. Lynn could work well with a different first name, but with Brooke it's just like Brooklyn.

I wouldnt use Lynn as a middle name,  Brooke Rosalie flows well, sounds lovely,  nice names

maybe you coud use names like Lynette, Lynelle, Lynae, Lyndal, Lynlee, Lyndi, Lyndel, Lynda , Lynea, Lynetta, Lyndsey as a middle

or Ashlyn, Katelyn, Madelyn, Evelyn, Jocelyn, Adelyn, Gwendolyn, Kaelyn, Roselyn, Carolyn,
