Which of these do you like the best

Finn

Max

Have long irish last name beginning with F 3 sylabells.

I wouldn't choose any myself, but why one do YOU like best? smile

bigbluebump Fri 24-May-13 14:18:39

sorry, which (not why)

I'm on the fence re the matching consonant thing - Fred Flinstone, Bob Builder etc. It can work really well and it can sound a bit much.

Assuming you like it - Finn or Flynn are nicer than Max or Riley. Riley I probably like least.

Finn (but I'm biased; I have a lovely 11 year old one).

Max is nice too but not keen on Riley or Flynn as they are more surnames in my mind.

I do like Finn the most but wasnt sure about having the same letter for First and last names

I prefer Flynn to Finn but not with an F surname. Don't like Riley at all. Which leaves me with Max which is fine, nice name.

Finn.
Don't like Riley.
Others are ok if you have to use one.

I'm not keen on any, but would choose Flynn if I had to. Although I'm not sure about the F.F. initials...

Max, definitely.

Don't like any, to be honest. Just not my style of name.

Lebkuchenlover Fri 24-May-13 15:18:26

I don't really like any, sorry.

I really like Finn. However Finn Flannagan or Finnegan would be too much. Finn Flaherty is also a mouthful. That is all the Irish F 3 syllable surnames I know.

Basically, go with Max, my second favourite.

Finn is a lovely name. Unless your surname is Finnegan which might be a bit much! I like alliterative names though.

I like Flynn too, not so keen on Max or Riley.
