I've loved the name finely / finlay a long time (I knew a really lovely one years ago!) but it's become pretty popular...should this put me off?
We're not telling people our names but a couple of people have suggested it as a name they like, so at least I know it's not going to freak everyone out!
The trouble is that we're struggling to think of other boy names...there are a lot of boys in our families and I've had quite a few boy pets!!

Yes Tammy, but the frequency in which names are used today compared to the 70s are very different. Where today there may be 3,000 Finn/Finlay/Finleys born per year; in the 70s there will have been 20,000 Steve/Stephen/Stevens born per year.
