    Is Finley getting too popular?

    For our last baby, if he'd been a girl we would have used the name Finley which we both love. Now we're pregnant again and talking about girl names and both still love Finley, but it seems like its rising fast and while I think its still in the mid-300s or something, I think it has jumped up 200 spots in the last few years. Do you think its destined to be the next "Harper" or do you think it'll stay around the 300s? I already know one baby girl named Finley, a toddler boy named Finley and another preschool aged boy named Finn so I'm starting to worry.

    Also, any suggestions on similar sounding names that are not popular would be appreciated! TIA!

    I really hate Finley for a girl, its a beautiful name for a boy in my opinion. I sincerely hope it doesn't become popular for girls as its one of my favourite boys names.

    I've been worried about the same thing! I just had a boy in March and if he would have been a girl, Finley was the name we were going to use. I LOVE it, but it does seem to be getting more popular, for girls especially. Do you like other unisex style names? Some of my favorites are:
    Rory
    Spencer
    Lennox
    Sawyer
    Tatum
    Teagan
    Cameron
    Campbell
    Ashby
    Rowan
    Harlow
    Winslow
    Crosby

    Good luck!
