Finnegan Bell was the name of the main character in the movie "Great Expectations" played by Ethan Hawke. It has always been one of my favorite names.

In the Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling, Finnegan is the surname of Harry's dorm mate, Seamus.

I love the name. My sister's friend is named Finnegan, but she's a girl. I definitely don't advocate this as a feminine name, but I do like her nickname - Finney.

This is a great name, and I like the nickname Finn. The name sounds quite sophisticated and mature, and old-fashioned in a charming way. It also sounds like the name of a nice and fairly attractive guy, ha ha.

This can't seriously be a name! It's so long and pretentious. It brings to mind Seamus Finnigan from Harry Potter and sounds more like a last name.

I like this name, but I'm surprised nobody is reminded of the common children's limerick: "There was an old man named Michael Finnegan / He had whiskers on his chin-igan / They grew out and they grew in-igan / Poor old Michael Finnegan! Begin again." I imagine someone with the name Finnegan would be Irish, witty, whiskered, and have an excellent sense of humor.

In the Star Trek (TOS) episode Shore Leave, Finnegan is the name of an upperclassman who tormented Captain Kirk when they were at the Starfleet Academy.

I love this name and the nickname 'Finn', but since I'm not Irish, I'd never use it. Imagine how silly this would sound paired with an Italian or Spanish last name.

LOL I see a short, stout, red-headed Irish man with whiskers and bright, twinkling blue green eyes and a wide smile! Not something I would name my kid, though :)

I love this name but I prefer it for a girl! It's currently at the top of my list and I'd love to use it for a future daughter of mine. Joe Biden has a granddaughter named Finnegan.

This name has a catchy sound to it, like Donovan and Sullivan.

Reminds me of "Vinegar" & that song "Poor old Michael Finnegan".

Definitely only a name suited for a boy. Cool and fun to say!
