Middle name is Elliot.

Thank you!

Oh, is Fynn the 'original'? I have only ever seen Finn!

Michael. Finn is very popular here , so although I like it I wouldn't use it.

I like Finn personally (and have only seen it spelled with and i!). It's very "now", don't know if you'd see that as a pro or a con!

John and Michael are more classic names and Johnny / Mikey are cute for a baby I think.

John or Michael. I agree that Johnny and Mikey are great nicknames too. And I love Mike for an adult.
Not so keen on Finn.

I like the name Fynn but Fynn Elliott doesn't sound as nice as Michael Elliott or Elliott Fynn!

I want to call my DS Elliott but unfortunately DH didn't like it 😞
Glad in a way or we wouldn't have come up with his name

Johnny is gorgeous, and John is good, strong, classic name.

Michael is fine too, as is Finn (but very different to the other two in terms of style, and also far more popular at the moment). I prefer Flynn to Finn.

John, good solid name.

Finn is a really trendy 2016 kind of name so it will date and there will be plenty around. But it will also be loved by almost everyone. Not my thing.

Michael and John are both nicely traditional. I've never liked the sound of the name Michael much, but I really love John. It's just so simple and classy, so that's my choice.

John. A classic and not overused!

Mrsknackered Tue 14-Feb-17 14:50:47

John's not overused because it's so dull.
I find Michael hugely boring too.
Love Finn/Fionn/Fynn too! (But mostly the first 2 spellings)

I like Finn best, but Michael goes better with Elliot.

I don't like John.

SoleBizzz Tue 14-Feb-17 16:45:43

Finn s awful.

Sophronia Tue 14-Feb-17 17:19:03

John. Michael a close second. Not keen on Finn.
