Little Lincolns: Kentucky’s best baby names

Little Lincolns

Lincoln was born in Kentucky in 1809. But do you know many Lincolns were born here in 2018?

Lincoln was the seventh most popular name for Kentucky boys. (Compared to 40th nationally.)

There are often differences between the Kentucky and national lists. Last year, for example, Paisley made the top ten for Kentucky girls but was only 45 nationally. We confess, we don’t know why.

Here are our suggestions for where to find Kentucky-flavored names:

• Counties – Think Grayson, Carter, Shelby and Crittenden.

• Historical figures – Try Boone, Ali, Loretta and York.

• Icons – Like Rose (run for), Brown (hot) and Coal.
