I like it I think its a good idea to wait to tell especially if you're not completely sure. I decided this time i will not be talking to family about ideas but will only tell once we're sure on a name.
I like Lincoln I second the not talking to family about names until you've decided. I don't know if it's my hormones or what but I get REALLY annoyed at people when they suggest names and shoot down all of mine. I really don't care if you went to high school 25 years ago with a neighbor whose brother's friend was named Thomas and you didn't like him!!
I love Lincoln!!! I agree with not telling the names until you find out the gender. We didn't tell anyone the names we had picked out, as I didn't want the input. We announced Bailey's name to our family after the U/S and finding out she is a girl, since all of our family was in the room together with us! That way, there was no room for dissent. It was like, ok she's a girl, her name IS Bailey Grace, LOL.

I think Lincoln is fabulous! I am also not sharing our name with my mom (we probalby won't even have a set name till he is born anyways). I just can't deal with people who feel free to voice strong negative opinions about a name when they weren't asked. My mom totally does that!
I knew a guy named Lincoln, and he was super sexy. I like the sound of it. My mother in law has picked a name she is going to call my son, and I dont like it. Umm.. that is not his name, and isnt going to be. So NO, dont call him that. It makes me mad. My husband doesnt like the names she picks either, and I'll make him be the one to tell her "No Mom."
