DH's friend had a baby last night

Brooklyne.  Don't ask me what the random e is for, but it made me chuckle because we live near a town called Brookline and I forsee many people mispronouncing her name to sound like the town.  Such a shame too, they have a nice classic last name.  Oh well.

Re: DH's friend had a baby last night

  • I totally read "Brook Line." That extra e is terrible. :(

  • They should've gone with Brookelyne. 

    Because two non-essentials e's would have made it extra special.

    That's exactly what I said to DH.  Just name her Brooke for crying out loud.  It's funny though, I don't think I would have cared nearly as much if I wasn't always hanging around this board! 


  • I read it as Brook-line.

  • My husband likes the name Brooklyn .....the problem is that we actually live Brooklyn. I vetoed it.

  • Boy or Girl, the name is simply awful IMO.  Poor baby.

    I have to ask, I see your son's name in your siggy, do you call him Victor?  My dad is a Victor and he would be so tickled to see a baby Victor...though his family called him Joe growing up (his mn is Joseph).
