Origin of the name LINCOLN.
Etymology of the name LINCOLN.
Meaning of the baby name LINCOLN.

  

LINCOLN.  The Roman Lindum, which is probably from lindon, the prehistoric form of the Welsh llyn, but often supposed to be the British name Llyndun, the "dun" or "hill fort" at the pool.  Lincoln is usually explained as a corruption of Lindum Colonia, supposed to have been the name of the Roman colony on the hill where the minster now stands.  But there is no evidence except that of the Ravenna Geographer to show that Lindum was a colonia.  The modern name may be traced to the Lindocolina of Bæda, and the Lindkylne and Lincolle of the Saxon Chronicle.  Lincoln is the name of no less than 1600 places in the United States, which were named after Abraham Lincoln, President from 1860 to 1865.  Port Lincoln, in Spencer Gulf, South Australia, was named by Flinders in 1802 after his native county. (Names and Their Histories, Taylor, 1896).
