Hi there,

DH and I are having a boy and want to name him Lincoln . What do you think?  Can you think of any short middle names to match as our surname starts with T and is long (9 letters) ??

Thanks original.gif

My friend just had a boy on Boxing Day and called him Lincoln Kai. I like it.

I went to uni with a Lincoln...he was a cool guy, so for me Lincoln is pretty cool name. The only thing is he often got his name shortened to 'Linc', which I don't like as much. I think the middle name needs to be one syllable, and probably something quite classic/conventional so as not to distract from the first name.

I really dislike it, but as a general rule I am not a fan of surnames as first names and the only one I know IRL is about the biggest knob head I know. He gets called Linc mostly.

I've always liked Lincoln.

I like Jefferson and Carter, too, if you're going for the presidential vibe.

I like Lincoln more than Logan but less than Linden. And my big love for L's are probably Levi if I'm being semi-normal, or if I'm lashing out, Lazarus.

For Civil War era my hero is John Brown but I can't imagine that's the theme that you were going for.

My favourite "that goes with anything" one syllable middles are:

I love Lincoln. It WAS going to be DS name...until I realised how popular it was starting to get.

Can't say I love it but nothing wrong with it.
Is a large country town in SA but that doesn't matter.
Would go with most short middle names, but probably not another L starting name. Cross Luke especially off the list.

We toyed with Lincoln as a name when pregnant with what turned out to be a DD. I went off it though as it is / was becoming very popular and I was a little worried about being a 'fad' name. An acquaintance has a Lincoln and he tends to get called 'Linxy' a lot which I really dislike and kind of put me off the name all together.

Lincoln is my BIL.  All my DH family have unusual names for their age.

He gets called Linc or Lincoln, mostly Lincoln.

My daughter has what seems to be a popular name (top100) ( not going to say as is very identifying mixed with her uncle's name) and I have not run into another one yet! my son also has a name that got increasingly popular after he was born, and has run into 2!

He has a one syllable middle name, but then again, he has a 3 syllable surname.  He has not always liked his name, and has named his children VERY common names.

I love it! Had this conversation with DH last night. Im not at all into modern names, but this one is great. Not too common, but not too weird.

I used to like it but the one I know turned out to be a selfish ***** so it has very bad associations for me now.
