It appears that David Beckham and Posh Spice might be making an impression on America after all. Less than a year after the soccer giant arrived in the U.S. with their 8-year-old son Brooklyn in tow, Stateside parents have embraced the name "Brooklyn" for their newborns. The Brooklyn Paper reports this week that BabyCenter.com has ranked "Brooklyn" as the 43rd most popular name in the country for tots.
Though the piece doesn't specify whether "Brooklyn" is being applied more favorably to boys or girls, The Optimist thinks it is a fine name for either sex. He hopes, however, that the Beckhams do not hold too much sway over America's appellations. One of their other sons' name is Romeo. Cheesy!
