    Super cute!!!  I love Finn! I would probably spell it Finn, not Fin, just so that people are more likely to spell it right.

    I think it will definitely fit and be a great nickname for Franklin V to set him apart from the others. 🙂

    Like Finn on Glee? It might end up being more common than you realize, but it is a cute name.

    It reminds me of Huck Finn, which is a good thing.  It’s cute!  Go for it!

    I was going to say no, but now that you have explained it- I like it.

    I think it is cute but I do think it could have an increase in popularity (as a given name) because of Glee.

    I love the nickname Finn! Actually, we’re not TTC right now, but Finlay is one of my absolutely favourite boys names, in part because I like “Finn”

    I love the name Finn, and all variations on it ; finley, finton, however for me Finn isnt a nickname of Franklin. Tho I do think Franklin is a great name in its own right.

    Yes! I love that, much MUCH more than “Frank” or “Frankie”. Love Finn.

    ETA- It doesn’t really make sense for Franklin, but you can call him what you want, and people will follow suit. If you called him Calvin, people would too. 🙂

    I like the name Finn but I wouldn’t get the connect to the name Franklin and would find it a bit weird and I think you (and your son) might be in for a lift time of having to explain the complicated story!
