My name is finn, and I’m transgender. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to choose my own name. I chose “[name_u]Finn[/name_u]” but I’m regretting it. Is [name_u]Finn[/name_u] too popular of a name?

Not in our generation.

I’ve seen quite a few lists that put [name_u]Finn[/name_u] in the first five and its kind of concerning cuz I wanted to be unique.

To me, [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is a lovely name that many people put on their lists but seldom use. You may be seeing it a lot as a nickname for longer [name_m]Fin[/name_m] names, but I’ve never seen it on its own in my area. It’s a great name!

I think it’s normal to doubt such a big change. I love [name_u]Finn[/name_u], but have never met one. If you are looking for something more unique, perhaps you could tell people it’s short for Finmore, [name_m]Findley[/name_m]/[name_m]Findlay[/name_m], [name_m]Finton[/name_m], [name_m]Finnigan[/name_m], or Fincent.

Good luck to you!

I think [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is a great name! :slight_smile: I don’t think it’s too popular, especially if you were born before 2000, because it wasn’t in the top 1000 (in the US, anyway) until then. [name_m]Even[/name_m] now it’s not in the top 200 (in the US) (well, as of 2015). Personally, I chose the name [name_f]Stella[/name_f] for myself, and it’s definitely more popular these days than I’d like, but it wasn’t in the top 1000 when I was born, and I really like the name and its meaning and sound, so I think I’m mostly okay with it.
