We have decided to call our DD Finty - we have both loved the name since hearing Judi Dench mention its her daughters name in an interview some years back. However we have no idea whether it was made up or actually comes from somewhere - we dont really care but know someone will ask us once she is born and the name becomes public - any idea??

Sounds to me like a very upper class kind of girl's nick name. I imagine 'Oh, Finty darling' in my head. Sorry! I have a really unusual name, but would not like to be called Finty at all. Lacks gravitas.

I've just noticed this thread is 4 years old!

I wonder if little Finty is about to start school?

I know it is an old thread but I quite like Finty.

Felicity also popped into my head as being the more substantial full name but I agree you could get away with just Finty if you have a surname that goes well. Also I think Fiona would be a nice full name for it.

I wonder if the op named her daughter this.

As to what to say about it, well the explanation you've given here - why not?

Oh! I didn't notice it was a zombie thread!

OP could be the mum of the Finty I know, hello friend! Just in case... grin
