Finley Bree vs. Finley Catherine

What should Miss Finley’s middle name be? The only problem I’m running into is that friends of ours just had a baby girl and named her Bridget Katherine. Would it be weird for me, 4 months later to name our daughter with the middle name of Catherine? Let us know! Thanks!

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Finley Bree 31% (4 votes)
Finley Catherine 69% (9 votes)


I assumed this was for a boy until I saw Catherine.

Finley is a unisex name and in the US (where I am from) is much more popular for girls. :) You can check the social security baby names list for reference.

We are pretty set on this name...Thanks for your concern though.

Sorry but Finley Bree doesn’t sound good due to the E sound in both. They almost rhyme.

I agree that it is unisex but I only know boys named Finley and a dog, male. If you like it than use it.

Finley isn’t unisex, just because someone uses a masculine name on a girl doesn’t mean its unisex. They are girls with a boys name.

Finley is most definitely unisex! Look at any baby name book or baby name website anywhere! Just because YOU (poster 5) don’t think its unisex, doesn’t mean its not.

I like the suggestion of Finley Madeline. Out of your choices Finley Catherine gets my vote!

I love Finley on a girl. Definitely unisex and more feminine than masculine. Finley Madeline is gorgeous!

Finley Cate or Finley Kate is adorable! Instead of Catherine, which to me is dated. I also like the suggestion Finley Madeline. Or Finley Madison. Finley Adelyn. Finley Annabelle. Finley Harper. Finley Tallulah. Finley Olivia.

Good Luck!! :)

It’s twice as popular for girls in the USA than for boys. Finley is a fine name for either gender. My favorite of yours is Finley Catherine.

Finley Kerrigan
Finley Darby
Finley Harper
The name is adorable but some people are touchy about names so surf the safe side!

Would never consider it for a girl. Great for boys and male dogs only.

I loathe the name Finley on either gender. Anyway I don’t think using the same middle name as a friend matters. Middle names aren’t usually used from day to day as a first name would be.

My friend’s daughter is named Finley Harper. It is beautiful. Out of the two you have listed I love Finley Catherine.
Finley Madeline and Finley Addison are also gorgeous.

Finley Catherine. Finley Bree doesn’t flow at all because they both end in the same sound. I think Finley Catherine is pretty and classy. I don’t see a problem with using Catherine as it’s just a middle name, and it’s spelled differently. Plus, it’s a pretty common name, so it’s unlikely it would appear you stole it.
