Already have a DS with quite a traditional name. Am 32 weeks pregnant with DC2 and we can't agree on a boys name! I like Finlay, DH likes Matthew. Opinions please?

Chubby - I prefer it with the D and that's certainly how my DS spells his name, but really I would go with what you prefer. I found that once written down, Findlay looked more like how I imagined his name to look than if I'd spelled it Finlay/Finley/Phynnleigh. I know that sounds a bit airy-fairy but it worked for me!

I get what you mean Blotted, I've been writing it down with all different spellings but think I prefer it now spelt 'Findlay'.

I have a nephew called Finlay, and even his nursery spells it Finley, so maybe the spelling is an issue. Prefer it Finlay to Finley or Findlay though.

I actually prefer Finlay over Matthew, even if it is very "trendy".
