Comments for LINCOLN:

I like this name very much -- but for a girl. I've been told that I'm insane for supporting it, but it is still one of my favorite female names. I've even come up with a combo for it: Lincoln Claire!

I think it is a good strong boys name.

It reminds me of "Link" the Zelda character.

Lincoln for a girl--INDEED! Please, please, please don't give your daughter such a masculine-sounding name! There is already enough of that going on these days.

I have nothing against the name Lincoln although it's not my favorite. My only suggestion is that if you're going to name your son Lincoln, it's probably better you don't live in Nebraska. Since it's the capital and all.

In the movie, 'The Island' everyone had clones of themselves to better ensure their longevity. But one of the clones called Lincoln Six Echo, broke free and desired to live like a real person. It was pretty cool.

I would seriously consider naming one of my sons Lincoln. I think it had a lot of class and structure for a name. The connection between the name Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln would be a petty reason to not use this name. That's like saying you wouldn't use the name Benjamin because of Benjamin Franklin. My only grief with this name is that it doesn't have a great meaning for it but it's still a great name.

In response to the comment that the connection between the name Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln being a petty reason not to use the name: the connection between the name Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln is the only reason I would use the name. What's wrong with naming a boy after our country's greatest president?

It's a pretty cool name, and "Link" would be an awesome nickname, with the hero in Legend of Zelda and all.

It's the name of a city and a county in England.

This name reminds me of a Lincoln Town Car (an old person's car). Not a very attractive vehicle.

I love the name Lincoln because it is very masculine and strong sounding, also I am a huge fan of Prison Break. I plan on naming my twin boys Lincoln and Michael after the show's characters. I know that's weird but I really love this name. :)

This is quite a pretentious name, but at least this isn't spelled Linkin or some other asinine spelling.

Lincoln Burrows from Prison Break is a famous bearer of this name.

Lincoln Lee is an FBI agent in the alternate universe on the sci-fi drama, "FRINGE."

I like this name. I think it'd be cool to name two twin boys Lincoln and Lee, after the Civil War commanders from both sides of the war. Kinda like ying and yang.

"Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln"... This name is an utter joy!
While I typically am not a manic supporter of surname-turned-forenames I can put all that aside. It is a very classic, masculine name-- and for those whom believe a child would be teased for certain resemblances you are likely the same beings titling you children "August," "Juniper" and other such artsy, kre8tiv, made-up, nature-types.

"Link" is a splendid diminutive-- one that has the ability to grow and transfer from boy to man with grace.

I thought it was a weird name at first, but the more I say it, the more I like it. Now it's among my favorites, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone having a son.

Lincoln Chafee was a Rhode Island politician who served as the 74th governor since 2011. Prior to that he was a United States Senate who served as a republican. He is notable enough to be mentioned and one reason to like the name. He is also kind of handsome, I think I am attracted to him :D

We named our son Lincoln. We call him Linc a lot, too. I love the name, of course. It was my great uncle's middle name, but it's what everyone called him. In my opinion, it's the perfect 2 syllable length, but then you have the cool shortened form too. To me the sound of it, in either of it's forms, is strong and meaningful. He is truthfully our Linc (link), our connection to our past, and our contribution to, and hope for the future.
