Opinions? I don't mind the association with the nintendo game, i actually quite like it!

Sorry, I though you were asking for a link. If you mean 'Link' as a name, then I think that could actually be the problem. Also, teasing 'are you the missing link' etc.

I don't like it personally and wasn't even aware of the Nintendo association.

Christen him Lincoln, call him Link.

Link on its own is a bit Mills & Boon.

Lincoln nn Linc is a bit cool.

Possibly better as a middle name, assuming The Missing isn't his first name. It's just, well, implausible as a name. Like you picked your favourite noun and went with it. I'd be waiting for you to introduce his brothers Shelf and Fork.

no. It's awful.

Don't like Lincoln I'm afraid. He wont be christened either! smile

Maybe as in linc short for Lincoln. Maybe. Definitely not link.

Mintyy Mon 01-Sep-14 17:03:05

Erm NO!

fairyteepee Mon 01-Sep-14 17:06:25

haha why not?

It makes me think of California Man!

RiverTam Mon 01-Sep-14 17:12:21

it's not a name, it's a word.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 01-Sep-14 17:14:17

It isn't a word I see as being a name.

Bowlersarm Mon 01-Sep-14 17:16:36

Don't like just Link.

Think it's only acceptable as short for Lincoln.

Sounds a bit Goth.

Bakeoffcakes Mon 01-Sep-14 17:23:54

Is it an actual nameconfused

Boysandme Mon 01-Sep-14 17:25:40

Sorry, I think it's awful.

BackforGood Mon 01-Sep-14 17:28:30

Awful.
I don't like names that are 'things'..... can just get away with so0me flower names, but Link? - No.

I like it! I've seen quite a few unusual names come through school and Link is one of the least presumptuous ones. It doesn't indicate a personality Type to me.

If you like it, use it. It'll only have that raised eyebrows effect on the first mention, then it'll just be Link's name.

13Stitches Mon 01-Sep-14 17:33:03

Oh, and regarding "missing link" jokes, I always think people pick on others for any reason at all. If it's not a name, it'll be something else. At least a name can be either blamed on parents or changed.

Nessalina Mon 01-Sep-14 17:43:55

I think it's cool! But then I envy Legend of Zelda.
DH says it's weird.

AberdeenAngusina Mon 01-Sep-14 17:47:48

Link? As in sausages?

It sounds more like a nick name than an actual name.
