Love it, suggested it on a thread tonight. Need to like Finn which ime it will inevitably be shortened to.

Like it - esp if Irish connection.

KangarooCaught Fri 10-Dec-10 20:27:33

Finnian only if you know your politics though wink

suzikettles Fri 10-Dec-10 20:30:59

Yep. Finbar Saunders and his Double Entendres.

That's showing my age though probably.

<Fnar Fnar Yip Yip>

Sorry op - I do actually think it's a really nice name. Couldn't personally use it though because of the Viz thing and the massive pile of them we had in our sixth year common room.

ditto suzikettles.

Ooh Im really sorry but I really dont like this name at all. Maybe cos theres about 10 million of them around here and I find it ordinary and a bit "meh" but also I, personally just dont like the sound of it. Its Irish for Barry which although is a perfectly fine name, just is a bit boring and not special enough, if that makes sense.

If you like the F sounding Irish boys names, how about:

Fionn - (means fair)
Fiach - (means Ravan)
Felim - (always good)

Also, this site is really good for traditional Irish names:

Great name, I love it.

prefer Finlay

anonymosity Sat 11-Dec-10 21:03:34

Excellent name. Also Fionton (pronounced Finton)

Needaname Sat 11-Dec-10 21:10:28

I miss Viz. Is it still going? I could never use Quentin or Tarquin for the same reason.

Perfectly nice name OP but anyone in their 30's will surely make the connection.

Connection. Fnarr Fnarr Snort.
