Oh, but she's married to the "Go away! 'baitin!" dude. It's going to be something wacky, like Dax Jr.

Wait...they named the kid Lincoln? In what might very well be a tribute one of the greatest Americans ever? Someone who rose from humble roots to the highest office in the land, who was killed while serving the country, and is best remembered for ending slavery (directly or indirectly)?

Oh, but the kid has a vagina. I see. Worst parents ever.

Lincoln? That's the weird name? It'll be shortened to "Lin" by the time she's five anyway, who gives a f*ck?

Kristen Bell went to the same high school as I did.

In the spectrum of weird names celebrities have picked for their crotch-fruit, that's not really that bad.

Lincoln is a a fairly unremarkable female name in the U.S., it's about on par with "Lindsay" as obscurity goes, I've known a couple girls with that name (well, I guess they'd be adults now) over the course of growing up in the central US.

So I'm not sure why the submitter's adopting a sarcastic tone about it, some sort of meme or subversion or something?

Abnormal name for a girl, true, but light years better than the epidemic of stupid looking phonetic names (y' know, like Kourtney... or Khloe). Those are not clever. They are a sign that you either don't know how to spell or want to be 'different'. Just remember, your kid carries that name until they can change it themselves at 18. And even that brand of idiocy pales in comparison to a name like, say, Apple.

I gave my kid two middle names.  If it doesn't like his first name, he has about 5 different nicknames to choose from.

Interesting article about his dying father.

I'd give odds the kid ends up going by "Bell".

I've been looking for those DVD screens of accidental nudity in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but can't seem to find them.

Anyone know what I'm talking about and willing to help?
 
2013-03-29 06:04:38 AM  
I think I'm only bothered by the hyphenated (without the hyphen) name. What happens if she marries someone else with a hyphenated name? Official forms will become a biatch to fill out.

God help me but this was enough to want to satisfy a new found curiosity and look for some trends. (At least in the US)

First off, Jacobs must be overwhelming elementary and middle schools by now but that's not because of Twilight.

If anything, Edward has dropped in popularity (2-0 for Team Jacob).

Names that have received a bump in popularity the last few years: Bella (and Isabella), Esme (barely?), Alice, Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie.

If it makes you feel even better some of these names seemed to be on the rise before the books came (Isabella was trending that way before hitting #1 for a few years). So maybe it's all coincidence?

Good news:Here you go.

Bad news: She's wearing pasties. Funny to see how much the added blur missed the mark though (on purpose? Probably?)

Oblig --
When I grow up, I shall have four children.
My first child will be a girl, and I will name her Stacey
I will be Stacey's mom, and I will have it going on.
My second child will be a boy, and I will name him Luke
And my husband will say, I am your father, Luke
My third child will be a girl, and I will name her Narnia
When I purchase something for her, I will declare, FOR NARNIA!
And my fourth child will be a boy and I will name him Sparta
When I introduce him to someone, I will shout, THIS IS SPARTA!

Also, I have 5 weird names so I think Lincoln is just fine.

Maybe not happy, more like having to have stood in place for several minutes posing for pics. I'd imagine that gets real boring, real fast.

I think Mrs. Samurai ended up donating at the $200 level.  She would have gone higher, had Kristen and Rob listened to her about adding an autographed plush sloth to the $400 or $500 tier.

Your dad didn't name you Yorinaga, by any chance?

I miss Wonderfalls. Criminally underrated and no where near the cultish following of VM.

This.

But then I think it goes to show that many attractive women don't view themselves that way and are waiting for a funny guy with a decent personality.

Or so I hope.

I can do one worse.  I know a guy whose son is named "Nixson".  Poor little bastard will be spelling his name for everyone for his entire life.

Yeah, nothing to see here, the WASPs are just continuing a time-honored tradition of naming girls with traditional boys' names or family surnames. Lindsey, Kimberly, Courtney, Hillary etc.

I actually like how they kept it Lincoln and didn't go with a trashy Lyncoln or Lynnkin.
