  • "I loved reading that blog entry about Sag Harbor to get some ighsnit not only from the blogger herself, but from her responders. Their viewpoints sum up the contradiction that is Sag Harbor. We certainly can't claim to be the un-Hampton anymore, but there are still enough vestiges of our former charm to delight visitors. The real trick will be to maintain a balance. What will Sag Harbor look like in twenty years if only the wealthy can afford to live here?" Dec. 29, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "One of the daughters of Seventies disco diva Donna Summer bears this name. As this Brooklyn is grown-up now, she'd probably be ahead of her time as this only recently became a popular girl's name in the U.S., as kind of like the "Florence" of the 2000s (Florence, as in the Italian place name, was hugely popular as a girl's name a century ago but is now NOWHERE in the American top 1,000)." Jun. 4, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I want to name my daughter Brooklynn but I can't be certain if I like it enough. I've had alot of mixed reviews with the family. I'm just realizing how trendy it is and I don't like the automatic association with NYC. That's why I want to add another n so it's more like combining Brook and Lynn instead of naming her after the place at least visually. I don't have any other names picked out." Nov. 28, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brooklyn and I used to think it was a unique name unitl every other person I met has a niece named Brooklyn. I guess it was unique when I got it over thirty years ago. When did my name become so popular?" Jul. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brooklyn and last time I checked I was a boy! My mother chose this name because we have a common surname and figured you need an original first name." May. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate
