This had been bugging me lately I know a lot of people dont like surnames as first names. But I keep seeing surnames that are commonly excepted first names: Grace, Alexander, George, etc. So why is it that its ok to use those surnames, but not say Lincoln or Carter (for example ) Just curious..Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Well, Jen, I dont REALLY have any input on this subject but I just wanted to pop over to tell you that I, for one, REALLY love the names you chose for your children & who cares if somebody else has a problem if you and Jay REALLY love them & accept them ♥♥

I don't know but I wanted to say I REALLY like surnames as first names. I don't know why people are so down on them. I LOVE your boys names.

I think it is a matter of personal preference and what one person likes may not be what another person likes. There are some "surnames" that I do like as first names, others I don't. I personally love Lincoln and Carter is cute too!

It's really just what's been used before and what people are used to.

Alexander, etc are okay for both because people are used to it, that's all.

It is not my cup of tea but if you love it there's no reason not to!

I'm not a theme-y person and I don't like surnames as first names.
Especially on females.
