Brooklynn -
keeping with the times

Brooklynn is a fairly recent phenomenon. In the past, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Then, unexpectedly, Brooklynn cried out for attention, reaching its peak in popularity at #124 in our SmartGenius statistics in the year 2011. People over 50 probably didn't have classmates named Brooklynn, for there were many years in which not a single parent chose this first name for their daughter. Although it also has never been in the top 100 of most popular first names, Brooklynn seems to have been in vogue for a while, especially since the beginning of the new millennium.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Brooklynn was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Of course, the name occurs more frequently in some states than in others – and Brooklynn is apparently especially popular in Nevada.

Brooklynn has 9 letters 
and begins with a B

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: 3.2% of all common girls' names in the US begin with a B. This means that B as the first letter for girls' names is neither particularly common nor rare. The most common first letters of girls' names are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.

With nine letters, the name Brooklynn is relatively long compared to other names. In fact, 5.6% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly nine letters. 92% of all first names are shorter, while not even 2.5% of all boys’ and girls’ names use ten or more letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

Thus, if 3.2% of all girls’ names start with a B, this initial letter is slightly less common than all other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with B that are quite common in the U.S., the most common at present is Barbara.
