Lincoln Origin and Meaning

The name Lincoln is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "town by the pool".
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.
