These have been a couple of great years for Honest Abe: Lincoln climbed a whopping 47 places in 2013, bringing it into the Top 100 for the first time ever, and it is now at Number 87. This admirable presidential choice with a stylish two-syllable sound projects the tall, rangy, upright, image of Honest Abe. Bill Murray is father to a son named Lincoln, and Kathryn Erbe's boy Carson has Lincoln for his middle name. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard gender-bent it for their daughter.
Lincoln Steffens was an influential muckraking writer, author of The Shame of the Cities. Lincoln is also a Teen Mom name, which may have had some impact, and is a major character on TV's Broad City.
The nickname Linc has a nice sixties 'Mod Squad' feel.
