When a new baby is on the way, she brings a lot of things with her, like diapers, cuddles, precious faces, and of course, lots of questions.
Your biggest decision regarding your new bundle of joy is likely her name.
Parenting magazine argues that the name may be even more important than you think! Many people form opinions about others simply based on name alone. Plus, a name also influences how a person feels about herself.
When you consider this information, it’s not surprising that people spend hours online searching for the best first name for their children. However, if you spend all of your time looking for the perfect first name, you might run out of steam when it comes to looking for the best middle name.
That’s why I’ve been putting together my How To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!
Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a girl named Brooklyn.
I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
Hope it helps!

These are some of the best ideas I could find from real parents of real Brooklyns — and other parents with good ideas too! There are also a few names I personally think sound great. But by no means is this list the end all be all.

Meaning of the name Brooklyn
According to BabyCenter, Brooklyn is of English origin and is a combination of two other names, “Brook,” and “Lynn.” It also means “a small stream.” Of course, it’s also associated with the popular New York City neighborhood of the same name.
The name Brooklyn sits at number 53 on the popularity list for girl names for 2020. The name also comes from the Dutch word Breukelen meaning “broken land.”
Some famous Brooklyns are fashion model Brooklyn Danielle Decker, and Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey, daughter of singer Nick Lachey.
