Pronunciation of Findlay
How do you pronounce Findlay? Is the 'd ' silent? To me it's a more masculine way of spelling Finley. I would probably use nn Finn most of the name but I think Findlay goes better with my top name Maxwell than Finn.
Would you go with...
Maxwell and Finn
Maxwell and Findlay
Maxwell and Finlay
All combos would go by Max and FinnDue October 2016

Yes the D is silent. It's a relatively common surname here & often spelt with the silent D.

I say Findlay/Finlay/Finley all the same... FIN-lee.
I know several boys with various spellings of the name and none of them are said fin-LAY. They're all different Anglicizations of Fionnlagh, but they're all pronounced the same.
I like Finlay best, especially with Maxwell. You don't really need to worry about it feeling feminine since Finlay/Finley is very rarely used on girls in the UK (it's a very American trend to use Irish male names on girls, I don't get it and thankfully neither does the rest of Britain).
