Etymology & Historical Origin - Brooklynn

Brooklynn is a feminized version of the increasingly popular unisex name Brooklyn. By adding an extra “n” to the end of the name, the “lynn” becomes a suffix making it more exclusively female. Brooklyn comes from a place name, one of the boroughs of New York City, which Dutch settlers originally named “Breukelen” (meaning ‘broken land’). It may also be a simple combination of the name Brooke and the familiar suffix Lynn. Most likely, parents began using the name as homage to Brooklyn, NY and it simply caught on, as place-names often have (Paris, Savannah, Phoenix, Sierra or London for example).

Popularity of the Name Brooklynn

The name Brooklyn is first used in 1990 and becomes very trendy very quickly. In 1995, the newly introduced spelling variation of Brooklynn is developed and appears on the charts for the first time. Brooklynn – with two “n”s – has been mimicking the success of Brooklyn, but still lags behind. American parents are almost three times more likely to bestow the name Brooklyn vs. Brooklynn on their little daughters. Place names for little girls have been all the rage in recent decades (Madison, Brooklyn and Savannah currently top the list in this category). It’s been a fast and furious trend since the 1980s and still shows no signs of weakening.
