Not with the word finnicky. People are immediately going to think of someone who’s anal or neurotic. It’s even spelled the same. There are plenty of better options Fintan, Findlay, Griffin, Finnegan, Phineas, Flinders.

I love this name. You can call him 'Finn' or 'Nick', but I wouldn't rule it out due to the word finicky. There are a lot of names that can have plays on certain words, but Finnick can stand on it's own.

What’s led me to this name today was Garrick, which reminded of Finnick. I think it’s a better alternative, as I associate finicky with Finnick.

I'm a fan of the Hunger Games trilogy and movies, but I don't really like Finnick as a name due to the close sound to finnicky, not the best association to have to an otherwise great name. It's a more unexpected way to get to popular nicknames of Nick (vs. Nicholas) or Finn (vs. Finnian, Finnegan, Finn on its own), and Finnick fits right in with the sound of popular names today. I wouldn't be surprised if this name becomes more popular in the next few years.
