  • "Most people leave out the "e" when spelling it and it can get really annoying, but its never mispronounced. The thing I don't like the most is that there isn't very many nicknames i.e. Brookie, Brookie Cookie (which I find annoying), Brooklyn, and BB or BOB (BOB is my initials thanks mom and dad for that one -_-).
