    Yes, and I find this very annoying, which probably explains why I dislike boys names on girls. Once a boys name "goes to the girls", it never goes back. Think of Ashley, Evelyn, Kelly, etc. You could use these names on a boy, but I'd bet most people would consider them "girly" names. When a parent chooses a "male" name for their daughter, I don't think it's necessarily a deliberate comment on feminism, but I agree it's an admission that masculinity is preferable to femininity (if that makes sense). I guess, maybe, I just prefer girls names on girls and boys names on boys! I suppose I'm rather conservative in my naming tastes

    I'm lukewarm about it as a boy's name, but I don't care for it at all on a girl. I think it sounds way too trendy, and yet it somehow still lacks the attractiveness of many other trendy names. I'd really only consider it if it had SIGNIFICANT personal meaning.

    I do not see lincoln as a unisex name, it's all boy.

    Thanks for all your replies. While the angry responses didn't surprise me because it seems to be a normal reaction to the name Lincoln on a girl, I have to admit that my jaw was hanging open at just HOW angry some of you sounded. Wowzas. You will probably be happy to know that I have definitely lost some love for the name after reading such negativity. Thanks again.

    The negativity to this name surprises me too. Personally I think the name is cute for a girl. But I guess I'm one of those rare lovers of unisex/boys names for girls here on Nameberry. The only things is, I have to agree that it will be assumed that you "copied" Kristen Bell and it is becoming a bit trendy... But if that doesn't matter to you, go for it! If you love the name, use it and don't let others' opinions sway you.
