If I took Elizabeth and used it for a boy, that would not make it a boy name, so that logic of yours is flawed. Also, I don't know where you live but I'm from the UK. Here, Finley is #36 for boys and does not show in the top 1000 for girls at all. It, along with the spelling Finlay, has also remained 100% masculine in Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

I'm assuming you're from America where boy names on girls is a very popular trend which, again, reaffirms that Finley is, in fact, a boy name. If it's being used in significant numbers on girls, that is unfortunate, but nonetheless Finley is, in origin, male. And I'm sure that Phynley has been used on some poor, unfortunate child but, probably only one or two as it is a recently made up spelling, therefore it should not be counted as a legitimate name on this website.

Finley is being used for girls, thus making it a "girl's" name. It's used more for girls than boys, so...
Yes, people have used the spelling Phynley.

1. Finley is a boy name, no matter how you spell it.
2. Phynley is not a variation of Finley, it's just a messed up spelling.
3. The messed up spelling doesn't make it feminine.
4. It's hideous and painful to look at.
5. I don't think anyone has used it, so why put it on the website?

Adding extra y's and changing an f to ph does not make it a girl's name.
