Finnegan? Love it or hate it?

My DH is Irish/Scottish and our last name is very Scottish.  I have fallen in love with Finnegan, nickname Finn, but DH is not so sure.  It seems like the name is gaining popularity lately.  I keep hearing it.  Do you like the name, and do you know any other kids with this name?

  • If you scroll down this page and the next, there are two or three other posts also asking about names with the nn Finn.  I think it may not be a common name right now, but by the time your little guy starts kindergarten I suspect there will be a lot of Finns.  It's a nice name though.

    I was just about to say this...

  • My son is Finlay, we call him Finn, and I know 2 other Finn's and one is Finnegan. I am biased, so of course I love Finn, but I also don't want it to get too popular!

    I like Finnegan, it was one of our choices but we decided to go with Finlay instead. I randomly call my son Finnegan Beginagain for some reason though when I talk to him!

  • Finnegan is trying to hard. Just go with Finn. It's cute. My friend just had a baby boy named Finn.
  • I like the name/nn Finn but Finnegan isn't really my style.  Finn is really cute, though.

     I haven't heard the name around where I live yet.

  •  I do not care for it but I do like Finn as a stand alone..
  • It reminds me of an anti-nausea medicine. It's called Phinegran or something.

  • What about Fenmore? And call him Fen for short?
  • I like both, Finn and Finnegan. I have an English cousin named Finbar and we call him Fin. His mother (my aunt) is Welsh and Finbar is a traditional Welsh name. Their daughters name is Sian. Go with it, if you like it that is all that matters. Big Smile
  • I like it.

  • All I can think of is Phenergan, the medicine. I don't like it! Sorry :(

  • I love it... but then again, my DS's name is Griffin (we don't call him Finn though... just Griffy and Griff or Griffin).

    We are considering Finley for a middle name for one of our twins.

    DH has some "Finbar" family members - which is a little too out there for me- but Finnegan and Finley I like a lot.  I am not a fan of Finnian, which someone posted about recently.

  • I like Finn or Flynn. But not Finnegan. That said, choose what YOU and your DH like. It doesn't matter what we think. Not a lot of people love the MN we like.
  • love it!  I dont know anyone with that name, but really like it.
  • I love Finnegan and Finn.  It was on our list for a while.
  • Love the name Finn! I named one of my former foster puppies Finn.
  • I don't like it. Around here, I think eyes would be rolling.
  • love it, Finn was our other choice if we had another boy. Dh is irish so we went with two irish names.
  • a friend of mine's son's name is Finnegan.  We sing a song where we spell his name out and everything.  Most of the time he just goes by Finn, though as well.

  • I love it but DD's name is Finley.  DH is also Irish/Scottish and our last name is a Mc name.

  • I like Finn...but Finnegan makes me think of the medicine Phenergan. ?Probably doesn't really make sense...but that's my thought.
  • DH's response is that Finnegan is the name of his favorite Irish bar in Winter Park, CO.

    I think it's kind of cute, but only if you are really Irish.  And if it doesn't rhyme with your last name.  I love the nickname Finn.
