Both are terrible for a girl.

um...neither? But I have to honestly say that Fynn will just cause her loads of trouble (both having to explain that she’s a girl and that no, it’s actually spelt with a y). So I wouldn’t use that.

Both are awful for a girl.

like i said, not asking for your opinion on the name, its going to be her name either way, just help with spelling please!

Fin? It looks a little less boyish. Fynn definitely looks bad.

Haha, you can’t say you’re naming your daughter Finn and then expect people not to give their opinions. The fact is, they ARE both terrible for a girl, because Ginn is a BOYS name.

Morgan, Taylor, Addison, and even Mackenzie are all traditional boys names. So why is it ok for people to name they’re daughters those names, but not a name like Finn/Fynn that just is not common yet for girls?

I HATE TRENDY SPELLINGS! Bad enough she has a MAN’S name dont make it worse my purposely mispelling it. God Please Dont. If you’re going to already make one bad decision by giving her a name that will have her ridiculed her entire life (as if you’re time here hasnt been proof enough) dont make it an atrocious one by adding a Y. Leave it Finn. And im sure most told you Finley was better. I dont mean to be rude and good luck to you, congrats! But it really is terrible for a Princess.

Finch
Fineen
Finella
Finna
Finnea
Finguala

Choose one of those! Or use Finley. Last case scenario use just Finn spelled the right way. GL

Because Finn is SO popular for boys. She will be surrounds by male Finns and Finleys and Finnegans and Flynns. I feel sorry for the poor child, she’ll be laughed at.

It’s a public forum so you can ask all you want but people are still going to give you their opinion. Especially is you are planning on giving your child an awful name such as Finn on a girl.

Because while many parents are using names like Mackenzie, the large majority are not and a huge proportion of those others are actually rolling their eyes or gritting their teeth. It may be a trend, but that doesn’t make it attractive. Honestly, they’re not all terrible. I can’t say Finn is particularly attractive on a girl, but both males and females from Finland are called Finn so I suppose it can work. I would definitely not stick in a y, though. I know people do that to make names girly, but they end up looking awkward and causing spelling problems for the kid.

lol, I dont know a single Finn, or Finley, or Finnegan, or Flynn. The closest thing i know is a Phineas, but, oh wait, thats a cartoon, not a real person. should not have made this poll. Our little girl is going to be named Finn! thanks for the help...not

Your daughter will hate you for her whole life..

Oh for goodness sake! You might not know one now, but it’s one of the most popular names, she will absolutely meet AT LEAST one and PROBABLY several different Finns by the time she is off school age. At least consider using it as a nickname for something more feminine. A name like Finn will not serve her well in life.

I like the above poster’s suggestion of Finola. I think that would be sweet and still has the "Fin" sound at the beginning.

I am a preschool teacher and have had plenty of students named Finn, Flynn and Finnegan and gues what!? They were ALL boys. So you can laugh and say you don’t know any, but the reality of the world I that last year Finn was in the top 300 names given to boys.

we were considering Finely or Finaly, but with the nickname Finn ~Poster

BECAUSE YOU RUIN BOYS NAMES THATS WHY! Rule of thumb, if you wont name your son Isabella or Elizabeth don’t name your daughter Finn or Noah or Adam or James or Logan! I don’t see the appeal or understand why?! Its not cute just a great big pain of gender ambiguity. As a nickname or middle name? Fine no one cares its cool but as a name that will always follow her through everything it could be a problem for her! What if she hates it? At least give her a name with options. Finn doesnt have any options at all. At the end congrats and hope you find something you love.

Will Finn be short for anything? I know a girl Sam and a girl Joey (their given names) and I know that Sam legally changed her name to Samantha so she could write it on college/job applications and Joey goes by Jo. I know it’s cute now, but she will one day be an adult among all the other Finn’s, Finley’s, Finlay’s, Finnegan’s, all male. Maybe a formal name, just for when she’s an adult?

When people suggested using Finn as a nickname, they meant using Finn as a nickname for a GIRLS NAME, something that Finley and Finlay definitely aren’t. Also, if you can’t even spell them right, then DEFINITELY don’t use them - that’s the last thing your daughter needs, a Kre8ivlie spelt boys name.

You mean Finley or Finlay? Finlay could be sort of cute, its better than Finn. GL

You’re just weird..

You don’t like ANY ACTUAL GIRL NAMES that were listed above for you?? I didnt even know there were female Finn names, thats a great list for you! I think you are just being stubborn and holding on to something that frankly just is always going to get the reaction you are getting now, and whats worse is you will eventually stop hearing it because SHE is the one who will get all the comments her whole life. Sweety really you should listen if the reaction is this negative, we really mean the best! Thats why we are all here.

Finlay nn Finn is nice. I think you had the same negative person posting over and over again. Names naturally evolve. For example, Ashley. Most of us would say it is more appropriate for a girl, but it is after all a boys name. So is Beverly, Meredith, Kelsey. I think Finlay on a girl will be accepted.
posted by guest :: 2013-07-15 20:24:40 | report
Why not call her Finley, but spell it Fynnleigh? That way you can really commit to humiliating your child. Names like Ashley, Meredith, Beverley etc did evolve,into girls names, I agree, but they weren’t some of the most popular names of the year when they were doing so!
