President baby names, Lincoln

Lincoln


Learn about the name Lincoln.

Historical rankings of the U.S. presidents usually show that Abraham Lincoln is the most popular Commander in Chief of all time. So it's surprising that while Lincoln lives in infamy in our history books, his surname has yet to break into the mainstream for U.S. baby names. Too big of a legacy, maybe? Or maybe not... Baby name charts show that Lincoln is on the rise so far this century. Actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard named their daughter Lincoln in 2013, and Bill Murray named his son Lincoln in 2001. Lincoln means "home by the pond" in Old English, which adds to its cool factor.
