    I FINALLY found a feminine version of Finn!

    I love the boys' name Finn, but I had trouble coming up with any girl forms besides Fiona [which is great, but not quite what I was looking for]. Now I have one: Ffion. Pronounced FEE-un or FEE-on, it's Welsh, it apparently means "foxglove". WDYT?
    Mary, Ophelia, Lily, Genevieve, Elsa, Agatha, Gwyneth, Blanche, Kate, Florence, Nessie, Dylan, Dee
    Finn, Cove, Augustus, Alfie, Todd, Harry, Dylan, Jericho, Alistair, Melchior, Wesley


    Yes, I like Dylan on boys and girls....don't judge me.

    I love names that are "outside the box" but I'm not a big fan of Ffion. I just think people would have a hard time pronouncing it. My daughter is Dara...just like Sara but with a D. People never get her name right and it makes her so mad! How about Fia, or even Finlee? I love boy names for girls.

    I like Fia, but I have Kia and Sia on my list, so I'm trying to stay away from it.

    Meh. I like the meaning, and I want to like Ffion, since I'm part Welsh, but I just can't get into it. The sound isn't terribly appealing to me. Though probably COMPLETELY unusable, I came across Fionnabhair (I think I'm spelling it right!), pronounced FINN-ah-vare. I think it sounds so lyrical and beautiful!

    What about Finna? I remember seeing it as a middle name on someone's list (as a middle, I think). I remember her saying it was an Icelandic word for something, and I remember liking the word, but I don't remember what it was (traveler, maybe?). I think it could make a cool name for a girl, even though I'm generally not a big proponent of taking random words in other languages and using them as a name (although I do think the French verb, améliore(r), would make a great girls' name!).

    Out of curiosity, if Finn is one of your top names for boys, why are you looking for a feminine variant, too? Finn and Ffion obviously aren't usable together...

    People won't spell or say it right. Go with finley for finlee in my opinion. Fiona is cute
