Origin of the Name Lincoln

“Lincoln is a surname and masculine given name of English origins. The surname originates from the city of Lincoln, England, whose name means “lake/pool colony”, combining the Brythonic word lynn with the Latin word colonia. This translates to town by the pool or settler by the lake,” according to Wikipedia. “Lindum colonia” is said to have been the original pronunciation, but soon was shortened to “Lincoln.”

The name Lincoln also has historical significance, as U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is famous for abolishing slavery. Abe Lincoln may be the most famous bearer of the English name “Lincoln.” He remains one of the most famous presidents in American history, not far behind George Washington. Other notable presidents are Thomas Jefferson, Harry S. Truman, William Henry Harrison, James Monroe, and John Tyler. But since this isn’t a history blog, I digress.

Lincoln was a surname carried over from England as Europeans migrated to the new world. It wasn’t uncommon to hear the name “Lincoln” in America, especially after Abraham Lincoln’s presidency.

According to the Social Security Administration, Lincoln was number 41 in popular boy’s names from 2017 to 2019. It stayed in top baby names for three years, but it is rising in popularity once again. It has also risen among popular middle names and is placed among many lists of top middle names in recent years.

Lincoln is a masculine name but has recently found its way as a unisex name. Some are using it as a feminine name. Dax Shepard gender-bent the name with his daughter, “Lincoln.”
