Brooklyn is an extended, more flowery version of the name Brooke. The New City suburb that inspired this name was originally called “Breukelen”, or Broken Town, by Dutch immigrants. In the same way that parents name their children Paris, London or Phoenix, the name Brooklyn began gaining popularity as an homage to the iconic NYC quarter.
