"This is a fantastic name! Masculine yet artistic-sounding, classic, chic, and sophisticated. A guy named Brooks is a real man, yet in touch with his sensitive side. Plus, this name will never be common. It's way too cool." Feb. 10, 2007:
"This is my son's name and is my favorite of all my kids' names. The name strikes me as classy but also kind of macho/western. People will drop the s, I have said I am going to start saying Brooksssssss to make sure they hear it correctly. We call him Brooksie, that was his great-grandfather's first name." Nov. 6, 2006:
"My son is named Brooks. Out of all my kids names, his is secretly my favorite. It's classy, some may think it's trendy but his great grandpa was named that in 1904. People call him Brook a lot. We call him Brooksie just like G-Grandpa was called." Nov. 15, 2005:

"Brooks was my name for most of my life, until I was 28. Don't get me wrong, it's a great name, but it was my father's name, and I needed my own identity. People never could pronounce it correctly, I found: I was always called Bert, Brad, Bruce, Bart... anything but Brooks. Wasn't there a character in Dickens called "Brooks of Sheffield" ? It, of course, is a very English sounding name." Jun. 20, 2012:
"This is my son's name..& I LOVE IT!! I know when some people ask what his name is they think it's a girl name! Which I don't think it is..but it seems like all the boy name's are turning into girl name's. I love my BROOKS!!" Oct. 23, 2010:
