    Random Name Epiphany

    I have liked the name Finn for a long time now. We considered it for our first child. I feel like it is quite popular compared to our other children's names so I haven't been sure if it fits. I like the sound of it. It also reminds me of the ocean (like a fin on a sea creature, or fin on a surf board) I like ocean connections . Just recently I started liking the name Franklin. It just barely occurred to me that Finn could be a nickname for Franklin! What do you think? I love when names that I like suddenly connect in more than one way. Both of my children's names have more than one meaning behind them which make them especially fitting to our family.

    I don't know if I will use this name in the future, but it is fun to have another idea to think about

    Have you had this type of experience before? Perhaps you have liked a name for a while, but suddenly you realize that there is more to it than just the name itself? Or maybe it has a double meaning? It would be fun to hear your stories!
    In love with my little ones Delmer, June, and Atticus

    Franklin goes very nicely with Delmer and June.

    I never would have thought of Franklin nn Fin, but that's genius. Delmer, June, and Franklin are perfect together.

    I'm not a huge fan of Fin, but I like Franklin a lot. Fin def works for a nickname.

    I love random name epiphanies. :-)

    I've grown to love the vintage charm of Franklin and I think Finn is a very inspiring nickname.
    All the best,
