Finley has been widely used as a first name for a long time. I disagree with the user who claims otherwise.

I prefer this name for a boy and trying to understand why girls are being given this name.

This is my last name though I think it would be a good name for a girl as well as a boy.

The fact is it's a nice name. You can't deny, though, that it's uncommon.

I love this name on a girl. On a boy it sounds too wimpy.

I like this name a lot. This spelling looks nicer than Finlay, and the name is short and simple, and it's mature and sophisticated without being snobby or pretentious. It's got some old-fashioned charm to it as well. The nickname Finn is nice.

I don't understand how this can be a first name. Why is it that surnames suddenly become popular and used as given names? It's not even that appealing, anyways. It either reminds me of a snobbish rich kid or the wimpiest midget you could possibly think of.

The last comment is incorrect. Finlay was originally a first name. The surname comes from the first name.

I love this name! This is my best friend's name, and he's not wimpy, a rich kid, or stuck up. Fin is the perfect nickname for this name, as well. I can't think of any reasons not to like this name.

This name is really cool. I like it and the nickname Finn.

Finley was the first name of my great (x 5) grandfather, born in 1750 in Scotland. He was a sea captain. I named my son in honor of him. I hardly think it is a wimpy or feminine name, and was certainly a first name before it became a surname.
