Due to have a little boy very soon and myself and DH both like the name Finley or Finnley but unsure of which spelling! Nickname would be Finn

Finlay, I'd say. Definitely not Finnley though.

Finnley looks like it's a spelling mistake

Finley or Finlay

I think Finlay is the one I'd go for

I've never seen Finnley and my phone tried to correct it to Finlay so I'd use the more conventional spelling.

One n.

Otherwise he will spend his whole life not only having to say it's with an e not an a but also that the n is a double letter.

Finley NN Fin, or just Finn as his whole name.

Finlay or Finley. Or just Finn.

I'd use Finlay but Finley is fine too. I don't think I'd use Finnley personally. It looks like more letters than it needs to be when I read it.

Finlay or Finlay. I prefer the name Finn as a name in its own right though.
