Did the Beckhams name their son Brooklyn because he was conceived there?Answer:
Not precisely. Brooklyn Beckham, the son of Victoria and David Beckham (pop star and soccer star, respectively) was named Brooklyn because, as Victoria Beckham says in her autobiography,
"I had always liked the name Brooke and then we suddenly thought about Brooklyn. I'd always like it as a place - it's very multi-cultural, very grounded. And it was only afterward that I realized how appropriate it was because it was in New York that I found out I was pregnant and where David came after the World Cup."
And another famous Brooklyn, supermodel Brooklyn Decker says, "I'm named after a horse. My mom's best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested 'Brooklyn' as a more formal version, and it just stuck." — Vanity Fair
In 2007, "Brooklyn" became the 43rd most popular name for babies at BabyCenter.com -- it is mostly used as a girl's name, as a contraction of "Brook" and "Lynne"
