  1. It was the first boy name me and my husband both really liked!

  2. Strong, short, Irish name. Finny as a cute nickname. Sounds great with big brother Jack.

  3. We chose the name Finn because we liked it. We knew we wanted to use the family name of Theodore as our son’s middle name so we wanted something short, unique but not unheard of and strong and for us Finn fit the bill.
    There is nothing I dislike about his name. I feel like it fits him well.

  4. We loved the simplicity of the name and the fact that it is Scandinavian. My husband is American with Scandinavian descent and wanted our kids to have a unique name like his. We both did not want to have a top 100 name, even though Finn is becoming very popular now!

  5. I loved the sound/meaning of this name from the start. After I told it to my mom, I saw a boy at the doctors office named Finn. Then I told my sister this at the beach later that week, and we got talking to a boy and his grandma, the boy’s name is Finn. I told this story to one of my coworkers, her brothers name is Finn and lastly, I told all this to a friend, and that night, watched a random YouTube video about two little brothers, the younger brothers’ name was Finn! In short, it was meant to be!

  6. We named our son Finn Theodore. Finn we just loved. And Theodore is my husbands middle name, a family name.
