I like Finn but really don't like Finley/ Finlay. I'm aware it has become quite popular but I've never met any (I'm in Australia though). How many Finns do you know?

I'm in Australia and know one Finn, one Flynn, and two Finleys - one a boy and one a girl.

My little DS2 is Finn grin I love it

Sophronia Sun 23-Apr-17 07:29:31

I know one aged 3

Thanks! I also know 3 Flynns and several Finley's. I think Flynn is nice too although it has a bit more of a trendy vibe to it and wonder if it will be one of those names that will be really popular for a short time.

Comeback good choice! smile

Naming boys is hard!

Our DS was nearly a Finn!

I know one Finn (8 months) and one Flynn (2 yo)

Finbar on my husbands side. Shortens to Finn. Love it.

I know 1 Finn in his 20s, 1 Flynn in his teens and a Finlay who's 5.

Jooni Sun 23-Apr-17 09:57:46

I don't know any just Finns, but I come across a few Finleys and know one little Finnbar, which I think is v cool! Finn is a lovely name - simple and strong.

ScarlettDarling Sun 23-Apr-17 09:59:54

I know a few but it certainly isn't common. I really like it. Love Flynn too.

MrsCharlieD Sun 23-Apr-17 15:58:23

I know 3 finlays and 1 Finn. There are also 2 more finlays on the nursery name badge wall but i dont actually know them. I also know a flynn but she's a girl. It's very popular here.

PurpleMadness Sun 23-Apr-17 16:00:00

I know two. I like it but prefer Finlay.

grufallosfriend Mon 24-Apr-17 07:23:06

I know lots of Finns (Finlay, Finley, Finnian), a couple of Quinns and one Flynn.

Abrahamkin Mon 24-Apr-17 08:42:12

I'm in Denmark. Plenty of Finns here. Mostly men in their 50s+ grin. Don't think that is relevant if you have no plans to move here though.

The Finlay I know has a Scottish Mum and Irish Dad. Shortens to Finn and works in both countries.

LBOCS2 Mon 24-Apr-17 08:56:15

I know three Finlays under 5, and they all get shortened to Finn...

MrsNuckyThompson Mon 24-Apr-17 09:14:46

I know one Finn in the UK aged 5 and one Finnbar in the US aged 7.

I have a Fynn. . He is 13

wigglesrock Mon 24-Apr-17 10:35:11

I would know 5 or 6 - all primary school age and younger, so under 11s. Most of them are short for Fintan.

upthewolves Mon 24-Apr-17 10:58:34

Thanks very much all. I suppose there is a 'family' of Finn type names which makes it seem very common. Not sure if it matters though!

Changedjustforthisonly Mon 24-Apr-17 11:00:38

MY DS is Finn (short for something else not mentioned on this thread) and I love it
I know of one other Finn and a couple of Finley/Finlays

TheScottishPlay Tue 25-Apr-17 09:47:41

Finton is a great name too.

grufallosfriend Tue 25-Apr-17 13:51:57

Abrahams, do you mean Finns from Finland grin

Abrahamkin Tue 25-Apr-17 18:13:43

*@gruffalo*: Ha! grin No. I mean actual men with the name Finn!
