I choose the name Finnigan when I was pregnant (2011) and when he was born I thought it was perfect. He has red hair and blue eyes. I love Irish names.

The only reason my parents named me Finnegan was because of Shamous Finnigan from Harry Potter.

I only know this name by the nursery rhyme "There Once Was A Man Called Michael Finnegan".

I love the name Finnegan on a girl, especially with a very girly girly middle name like Julina. I think girls with boy names look better in girly clothing instead of tomboyish clothing even at age one. A picture with a girl in an ultra-girl outfit who's so girly girlish with a masculine name like Mason makes things interesting, just like a edgy, tranny tomboyish girl with a feminine name like Olivia. And those two girls are hanging out together and you see them walk by, you’re thinking to yourself, “those two should swap names!” No, No, No! It’s really interesting. I like Finnegan for a boy too. It’s cute for either gender.

Don't like it.

I love the name Finnegan. I have a nephew named Fynnegan. We call him Fynn often. We are an Irish family. Finnegan is a very Irish name! I didn’t like it at first because of the Old Man Michael Finnegan song. But it suits my nephew so well & now I love it!

I really like this name and would totally use it for a character or son, with the nickname "Finn".
It brings to mind Gilligan's Island for some reason.

It's my son's name actually! His full name is Finnegan Argent Cloud, and his nickname is Finn. We chose it due to the large amount of Irish from both sides if our family, and simply because it's a name I've always really liked.

It sounds like a surname because it is a surname! I can't believe anyone would use this as a first name, how weird.

Not a bad name, but it sounds a bit too surname-y for me to really like it. I prefer just Finn or Finley.

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

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

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

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
