"We named our son Brook in 2012. We love the name. People often were surprised when we told the we were naming our son Brook forgetting that before "Brooke" the girls name became used and popular, Brook was a boy name. To us it sounded like a strong boy's name. However he is often assumed to be a girl when just the name is presented. And even when people who have met and know him write his name they often spell it with the "e" on the end. To me that seems to feminize it so I don't like when people do that." Jan. 21, 2014:
