I named my son Findlay after my husband’s late grandfather. We call him Finn for short all the time. His name suits him perfectly. I find it very masculine and old timey. As he gets older I imagine only close friends and family may refer to him as Finn but most will refer to him by his full name.

I don’t know anyone by that name but if I had to guess, I’d say it was a girl’s name. But take that with a grain of salt given all the different opinions here!

I like Finley and think it’s perfectly masculine! (Anyone naming a girl Finley is just putting a male name on a girl, IMO.) I also love Finn, both as a nickname and as a complete name in its own right. The only other Finn name I can think of that hasn’t been suggested to you yet is Finnian. I love that one! Fintan, Finbar, Finnegan are great suggestions that have already been made. Oh, and there’s also Phineas!

smilestorm: Finnegan was one of our top contenders for a long time. However, we found Finn to be a bit too common for us.
