  1. It was always in our top 3 list. We loved the shortened version of Finn for a boy and when we saw his little face during our 3D ultrasound at 32 weeks we just knew that was his name.

  2. My husband came up with Finley a day after our son was born. After looking up the meaning and origin we decided it would suit our son very well. It wasn’t until long after choosing his name we noticed that the name is being given more frequently in the U.S. to baby girls now, and we are frustrated with that. I grew up with a traditional boys name and I hated being assumed to be a boy and I didn’t want to do that to our child.
