William. Finn is shite. Overused shite at that. William is lovely.

William for me too.

Finn, definitely. Williams are everywhere, it's so dull.

Flogging.. there's no need to say Finn is shite, what's wrong with just saying which one you prefer?

Floggingmolly Thu 24-Nov-16 17:45:23

It's my opinion. We're all allowed one.

I like Finn, but I suppose there are more options with William: Will; Billy etc.

I appreciate opinions, there's no need to be nasty that's all.

William for me too

I prefer William

With William you have a more traditional name, but a much more common one.

Finn is more unusual, but possibly in a bit of a trend right now, which means it may sound dated in decades to come. No way of knowing for sure, but there's a higher chance of that than with William.

Personally I think Finn is much cooler so I'd risk it. William is just so boring.

I much prefer Finn. William is too royalist for me. Finn also works well in other European countries. I know a Danish Finn (adult).

Love them both but would use Will as the everyday name if I chose William. If you were using William day to day I'd go with Finn

If I had to choose, William. But the one we know gets teased with Willy blush

They are both very popular, although in different ways- William because it's a classic. Finn because it's trendy (though I think its peak has passed, a few years ago almost every boy was either Finn or Finlay)

I'd go for William.

William is nice but they are very common. There are two at DDs preschool and we know another two through friends.

Finn is nice and I think less common, but it's less of a classic name, so will date more easily.

Both great names! I'm a big fan of Finn and would choose that, but William is classic and a good choice too.
