I overheard a name in the park, a lovely little boy named Fen (or is it spelt Fenn?)

Is it actually a name? Does anyone know anything about the name?

Fenn - from the fenland

Quite like actually.

i know it as a girls name, fen

Nope, but think Fenn is quite a sweet name for a little boy.

May be confused with Finn which is very popular - I know 3 little boys called Finn. Also, several Finlay/Finleys, one of whom has his name shortened to Fin.

Short for Fenchurch? All H2G2 fans would be in geeky appreciation.

I had a maths teacher called Miss Fenn so surname as first name potential

Or

Girl's name Fenella for which Fen could plausibly be the nn

My Felicity could have been Fenella,I think it's a beautiful name.

I LOVE Fenn, it would be on my list as number 1 if it wasn't one of my friends surnames.

Love the name Fenella, with Fen as nn. My hubbie thinks its poncey though.

Fenn is a girls name I thought. A RLF just had a DD called it.

FimboBBINGFORAPPLES Wed 20-Oct-10 17:11:11

I know a girl Fenn.

I prefer Fionn. (fyun)

I have a 7 yr old boy, Fenn - still love the name now - (a uni friend was called Fenn and have met another boy, so definitely not a girls name!)

Not keen although it does make a change from Finn.

It is nice.......... but unfortuately due to all the little Fins/Finns out there now it will probbaly be mishead and mispronounced too much IMO

So I would stay away from it.

You'd have to not mind having the name meaning a windswept peat bog.

I love it, but for a girl.
