THE BRONX - Some people love the area they live in so much, they would even name their children after a 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.

Most residents in the Bronx say they wouldn’t name their child after the borough.
