    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "town by the pool"
    • Description:

      Lincoln might be considered one of the quintessential American names, calling to mind the great president who freed enslaved people and is memorialized in Washington. Although better known as a boys' name, 163 American girls were named Lincoln in 2016, some of them undoubtedly inspired by the choice of Lincoln for their daughter by actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. Whether in honor of the President, the car, or one of the many cities across the US (and the world) named Lincoln, this is a recognizable yet off-beat choice that is sure to attract comment and attention and is one of the steadily growing boy names for girls.

    • Description:

      Lincoln cracked the Top 50 for boys' names for the first time in 2016, more than 150 years after the death of its most famous bearer. This is especially remarkable because, as crazy as it seems now, Lincoln was deeply out of fashion as recently as the late 90s, consistently hovering near the bottom of the Top 1000. 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.
