Lincoln is a surname and masculine given name of Old English origin, derived from the city of Lincoln, England, whose name means "lake/pool colony". The city's name is a combination of the Brythonic word "lynn" (meaning "lake" or "pool") and the Latin word "colonia" (meaning "colony"). This translates to "town by the pool" or "settler by the lake". The name Lincoln has been somewhat prominent as a first name for males in the United States due to its use to honor Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States during the American Civil War. However, the name has been in use for centuries before the famous president was born. In addition to its historical and geographical significance, the name Lincoln is also associated with Lincoln green, a type of dyed cloth fabric made in Lincolnshire, England, since the 16th century.
