    How popular is Finn really?

    We are almost positive we want to name our second son Griffin and possibly call him by the nn Finn when he is younger but I keep reading how popular Finn is but it's not even in the top 200 yet...How can this be? Even when you consider all the possible Finn nickname sources (Finnegan, Finley, etc) they still don't make up for the discrepancy in my opinion. Am I missing something? Of course if we choose Griffin then we don't have to use Finn but I'd like to understand the popularity of the potential nickname before I make a final decision. Anyone else have a clue?

    Popularity doesn't matter when you consider how awesome the name is, but since you asked, I've only seen the name used once on a real person.
    I can really imagine myself having a daughter named Moira or Rochelle...

    I never met a Finn and I like the name better than Griffin.

    Other then Finn from Adventure Time (on Cartoon Network), I have never meet a Finn in real life. We did have a Griffin in our class, but we called him Gilford, lol.
