In ancient times Brooke was used for both males and females. In other words, it was a unisex name, but nowadays, it is widely regarded as a female name. it has first appeared as a variant of the surname “br’oc” which referred to stream. This surname referred to the people who dwelled near a brook or stream for recognition. (As you know surnames generally come from places’ names, nicknames, occupations, handed down names, and so on.) in this case, Brooke is derived from a topographical feature which is a water stream.

We chose this name for our daughter, who was born in 2006. Her name is Brooke Ellen. We chose Brooke for a few reasons. I am a real nature lover and my husband loves water, well we both do, but it just seemed to fit. It's funny, it suits her to a "T" and it turns out she loves water too! Ellen is now a four generation middle name in my family, my grandmother, my mom and I all had the middle name Ellen but we dropped it when we were married and give the name to our first daughter. We love it, it's beautiful!
