You might think Brooklynn refers to New York City. But that extra “n” at the end is a clue that this mention is not a shout-out to the hip borough but to the geographically great name for a girl. Owing much of its existence to older and more famous sibling Brooklyn—the unisex version with one “n” has been around since 1990—the feminized variant became popular in 1995 as parents of daughters wanted a spin on a name that was everywhere. Brooklynn can be easily translated into “water" or "small stream” (brook) with the suffix “–lynn” attached at the end.
