I dislike the name because it’s too similar to the female name Brooke, and the S makes it look plural. Why name a kid Rivers when you can name him River? I guess people don’t name their son Brook because it’s too similar to Brooke. Well, how about just picking an entirely different name then? There are plenty other B names to choose from: Brian, Bryce/Brice, Bruce, Bruno, etc.

Brooks is my first name. When looking the name up, I learned the first name "Brooks" is an Old English masculine name meaning "he who carries a burden or overcomes an obstacle". I found this to be quite fitting in my case.

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 ;)

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.
