According to new data from the Social Security Administration, "Brooklyn" is one of the most popular names in the state, and one Utah pol says it's about patriotism.
Herriman Mayor Josh Mills tells the New York Post his daughter got her name because of 9/11:
"Everyone in the country has an emotional connection to what happened on 9/11, and Utah is a pretty patriotic state," said Josh Mills, 35, mayor of Herriman, Utah, whose daughter Brooklyn was born in 2002. "When we were picking out names, we wanted to commemorate the spirit of the city. It's not Manhattan, but it's close."
