Place or President? Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell Name Baby Girl Lincoln


70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsOn thing for sure, brand new parents Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell certainly have a well-tuned sense of humor!

To announce the arrival of their child  – a baby girl – Dax Shepard tweeted, “Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!”

And Kristen hilariously tweeted, “My new roomate poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent…basically (Dax) pre-sobriety :) welcome baby Lincoln xo.”

So that brings us to the name. The two went with the unconventional and unusual name Lincoln. But right now we do not know if they choose that it in honor of:

a) The town Lincoln, Nebraska.
b) The president Abraham Lincoln
c) The car – they’re stars so they are often in a Lincoln towncar
d) They really loved the Steven Spielberg hit Lincoln.

But the name is actually more popular than you’d think. According to BabyCenter is came in at #178 in 2011. That ranking is for the name as used for a boy, the use of it for a girl is far more unusual.

What do you think of the name Lincoln for a girl?
