LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old english (anglo-saxon) 
NAME ROOT:
*BRōKAZ > BRōC > BREUCKELEN
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) “brōc”, which in turn from the Germanic “*brōkaz” meaning “near a stream, near a brook, a brook or a stream”. Brooke and Brook is the form used in the masculine since the seventeenth century, while the female appeared in the nineteenth century. Brooklyn is a given name that has increased in popularity for girls in the United States. It has occasionally been used as a name in honor of Brooklyn, the New York City borough, but is usually regarded as simply a combination of the names Brook or Brooke, plus the suffix -LYN, which is an element in other popular contemporary names in the United States. The history of Brooklyn spans more than 350 years. The settlement began in the 17th century as the small Dutch-founded town of "Breuckelen" on the East River shore of Long Island, grew to be a sizable city in the 19th century, and was consolidated in 1898 with New York City (then confined to Manhattan and part of the Bronx), the remaining rural areas of Kings County, and the largely rural areas of Queens and Staten Island, to form the modern City of New York.
