BROOKLYN - Some people love Brooklyn so much, they would even name their children after the borough.

Brooklyn as a girl's name has jumped into the top 30 most popular names in the last three years. The name is also the only borough to make Social Security's top 1,000 names in the last 14 years.

Some say the name popularity comes from soccer star David Beckham, and his wife Victoria, naming their son Brooklyn.

Others give credit to actress Brooklyn Decker and the movie "Girls."

One area that isn't jumping on board with the Brooklyn-craze is New York City.
