If your name is Brooke, you flourish and thrive in social situations, and the perfect way to describe you is as the “life of the party.” You are naturally exuberant and bubbly, and others flock to your side to enjoy your sense of humor, your ability to bring life to every situation, and your gift of gab. Because of these qualities, you are a natural entertainer, and you might even find this a successful career, especially in music or comedy.
You strive towards a comfortable lifestyle and quality in everything you own. Your love for others, combined with your appreciation for high quality material things, makes you an incredible gift giver. Be careful, though, not to overspend, and try to save a little for a rainy day. You never know what might be just around the corner.
You are extraordinarily loyal to your friends and family, and they are extraordinarily loyal to you. They feed off your positive energy and are revitalized by your zest for life. You are spontaneous and happy, always appreciative of the opportunity to socialize with others, just as others are always appreciative of their opportunities to socialize with you!
The name Brooke originates with the surname from Old English—“broc”, meaning “brook” or “stream.” The name was used in Medieval times to mean that someone lived near a brook or a stream. It later evolved into the name Brook, and then the current variation Brooke.
Brooke has been used as a name for both girls and boys, though recently, it has become much more frequently used for girls. In the United States, it came into popular usage during the 1950s, probably influenced by socialite and philanthropist Brooke Astor. But it became extraordinarily popular with the fame of model and actress Brooke Shields in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when it hit the Top 100 in popularity. During the past twenty years, Brooke has maintained a popularity of around #50.
