Comments and insights on the name Brooklyn

Although it is popular for girls, it is an equally strong masculine name with the adorable nickname Brooks.

Too feminine for a boy!

My great grandfather's name was Brooklyn and was quite the manly man. Because of this, I've never considered the name feminine at all. Brook is strong enough to offset the femininity of the -lyn ending.
