    Which spelling?

    I like both spellings, but can't decide on one. I like Finlay, because it's the original; but I want to be able to get the nickname Finn with two n's. And I have a feeling that people will spell it with only one if it's spelled the other way. The name is for a girl, if this makes it easier to make a decision. Thank you.

    I think that Finn is very masculine! But I think that finlay is pretty feminine!! So maybe finny or Leigh as a nickname!!

    Finlay sounds more feminine and if she spells Finn with two ns then others will. It's like Sammy and Sammie:- people go with the persons preference.

    Who is stopping you from using Finn for a Finlay? Use the original spelling or Finley.
    All the best,
