Comments for BROOKS:

I think this makes a good first name, the only trouble is that it's easy to become confused about whether it's a first name or surname. For example, I went to a school that employed one teacher with the last name of Brooks, and one with that as a first name - it got confusing very often.

It sounds a bit nickname-y, but I kind of like it. It's not the world's most serious name, and it doesn't sound very mature, but it sounds like the name of a fun guy who also happens to be wise and friendly. Yes, I know that sounds contradictory, but the name sounds boyish and fun as well as the name of some guy who has life experience and good words of advice to his friends. Don't ask me why. It's a bit of an old-fashioned name, but not in a geeky or pretentious way.

This is my name. I like it and think it's neat having a name not everyone has, but it is annoying when people call you "Brook" or "Brooke". It is a really good name though, and I recommend it.

I love it! Except I sorta confused it with 'Brooke' at first.

Brooks has upper crust, old school charm whilst not seeming unapproachable or snooty. A solid choice.

Ugk. It looks like a plural. Not manly, whatsoever. I don't like most names that end with S. It looks plural.

It is my father's middle name, and my brother is a Jr. So this is what we call him. He was unfortunately called Brooke too often as a kid, since the name was so unique.

He got the family nickname Skoorby when we were in a phase of pronouncing things backwards as kids, and my 2 yr old referred to him as Uncle Scurvy for a while ;)
