Brooklyn, huh? Here's a family history tidbit for you. If you already know this, I apologize. There is a town in NY/NJ that was originally named Pearsall after one of the original colonizing families (us!) Much later they decided to change the name - against many objections - and since the name Brooklyn was widely know, but taken, they named the town Lynbrook. There's much information about this online, including in this forum I'm sure.
