    I love Lincoln, and it would fit perfectly with Emmeline and Jack!

    I think I find it appealing because of the nickname Linc/Link, which is so cool. I've never met a Lincoln either and I have only just realised that people in the UK associate with the place in the UK named Lincoln, the same with Preston but I still like both. However, would probably not use it as a first name because of those places.

    When I think of Lincoln, all I recall is Lincoln Burrows from the series Prison Break and he was such a good looking, rugged man so again only a positive image

    I like the idea of Lincoln, its history and associations, but find it slightly difficult to say. It also reminds me of the social network Linked In.

    Personally, I'd never use it. Being from the US, its association with the former president Abraham Lincoln is horrible for me. I'd never want to name my kids after a president like that.

    I'm from the States, too, but I really rather admire Abraham Lincoln. I think the name is great! I prefer the nickname Cole to Linc, but that's personal taste.
