Brooks vs Lincoln

Which one do you prefer? Our last name is [name_m]Leary[/name_m]. I love the alliteration of [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m], but it is quite a bit more popular than [name_u]Brooks[/name_u]. I love the simplicity of [name_u]Brooks[/name_u]!

I like both but I prefer [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] with your surname :slight_smile:


I prefer [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] as a first name too! [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have a middle name? [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_u]Brooks[/name_u] would be very cool and modern.


[name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] is so handsome, and [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m] is so sweet and memorable!
I know [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] is currently getting more popular, but I have never personally met one!

I second [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_u]Brooks[/name_u] if you don’t have a middle already! :slight_smile:


I like both for very different reasons ! So you can’t go wrong.

Brooks feels fresh , trendy and has nature ties.

Lincoln is tied in history , feels sturdy historical and smart.

I personally only know 1 of each . [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] would be in his early 30s and [name_u]Brooks[/name_u] about 6. I really love alliteration so I would sway to [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] slightly . I do love the suggestion of [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_u]Brooks[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m] though !!

[name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] is very popular.

I prefer [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m] as I adore names with alliteration and [name_u]Lincoln[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m] sounds rather lyrical. It may just be my [name_u]New[/name_u] Zealand accent, but when I say “[name_u]Brooks[/name_u] [name_m]Leary[/name_m]” out loud, all I’m hearing is “[name_u]Brook[/name_u] Sleary” even when I slowly say the two names together.

I prefer [name_u]Brooks[/name_u]
