I love surnames and think it's really funny when people try to say 'That's not a REAL name'. I bet your 2 sons might disagree...HaHa I love your boys names!! Ignore the Haters. I want the next one to be Wilson!

I can only think of Hilary Duff and Clinton... I had thought about using a first lady name, but none of them really jumped out at me.

I like surnames for first names. Who cares where the name came from? All names stem from something. The first time I saw Lincoln used as a first name is when I saw your little boy in the siggie. I think it's a really cool name. It's different, but doesn't sound made it up. It has substance and feels rich in history...does that make sense?? LOL, I'm sleep deprived so give me a break. I also really like Carter. I suggested it to DH, but he is still unsure. Then again, he isn't sure about ANY name. I guess it comes down to a matter of opinion. I also think some people look a little too far into names. In my opinion, if you like it, then use it. Who cares if in a novel that so and so wrote the character with that name was a womanizer. Do you really think your kids friends will know that??? Oh well, that's my 2 cents.

I don't know Jen. I guess it boils down to one's personal preference and what has become "accepted" over time as a "legit" first name. I think surnames as first names are really cute and I really like a lot of them. The first time I heard Licoln as a first name was your son and I thought it was so cute, and it totally fits him. If you like them, use them, who cares what others deem appropriate. There's always going to be someone that doesn't like the name you chose (although I love all your kids names), all you have to please is yourself and Jay. I don't have any surnames on my name lists but I guarantee there are tons of people who hate them!

I love the names Alexander, Harrison, Grace & James. They can all be surnames. I don't see anything wrong with using surnames as a first name.
