[name_u]FINLEE[/name_u] all the way!

[name_f]Hadlee[/name_f] is slightly better, I just find [name_u]Finlee[/name_u] too masculine. Would you consider the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] spelling?

Well, how about [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] or [name_u]Finley[/name_u] instead? The -ee endings on both names seems to be an attempt make the names more feminine, but honestly, it just makes them look kind of wonky. My vote is for [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] over [name_u]Finley[/name_u], as [name_u]Finley[/name_u] is very masculine, but only if you use the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] spelling.

If you feel the need to misspell a name it’s probably because you aren’t comfortable giving an androgynous/masculine name to a girl in the first place. I voted for [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f] though. [name_u]Finlee[/name_u], in any spelling, is quite simply a boy’s name.

[name_u]Finlay[/name_u] is a boy’s name so… begrudgingly… [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], but only spelt like this.

I don’t like either much, but even less spelled like that. It doesn’t make the name unique, if that’s what you are going for.

I disagree with the above posters. I think that although [name_u]Finley[/name_u] is masculine, [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] is worse. I really dislike the “Had” sound, so clunky! [name_u]Finley[/name_u] may be a boys name (and I love it on a boy), but I think it’s prettier than [name_u]Hadley[/name_u]. Have you considered [name_f]Marlee[/name_f]? I have a friend who’s name is [name_f]Marlee[/name_f] and she loves it! It’s so pretty!

[name_u]Finlee[/name_u] ([name_u]Finley[/name_u] is my preferred spelling; less people to spell it wrong in her lifetime, too) would be adorable on a little girl!

I’ve known more girl Finleys than boy Finleys so it’s more feminine in my mind. I chose [name_u]Finlee[/name_u] but I like [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f] and [name_u]Finlee[/name_u] the same, although I prefer the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] and [name_u]Finley[/name_u] spellings. [name_m]Just[/name_m] a suggestion, if you choose [name_u]Finlee[/name_u] and are spelling it that way to make it more feminine, what about using the [name_u]Finley[/name_u] spelling and choosing a very feminine middle? Best of luck choosing!

I strongly suggest that, whichever name you choose, you use the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] or [name_u]Finley[/name_u] spelling.

I prefer [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f]! However I do prefer the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] spelling I think it looks more pretty!

I have never been a fan of [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], spelled in any way. However, I love [name_u]Finley[/name_u], but only spelled [name_u]Finlay[/name_u]. To avoid confusion and make it easier for your daughter, I strongly suggest [name_u]Finley[/name_u] or [name_u]Finlay[/name_u] then at least she could say [name_u]Finley[/name_u] with an EY or [name_u]Finlay[/name_u] with an AY.
Unless there is significant family ties to that spelling or spiritual reasons for the [name_u]Lee[/name_u] endings, I’d avoid them. No offense.

Both [name_u]Finley[/name_u] and [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] are more common for girls these days than for boys, so don’t listen to anyone telling you they aren’t girls names. I love [name_u]Finley[/name_u] for a girl! It’s actually one of the top names on my list.

As for the spelling, I do have to agree with everyone else that you should go with the traditional spellings. I promise I say this to be helpful and not to be critical. I grew up my whole life with a misspelled name and it really does make things a little more difficult. Not only do I constantly have to correct people, but I’ve received important documents, including my high school diploma, with the wrong name on them.

[name_m]Don[/name_m]'t worry about the names not being feminine enough in the traditional spelling. I think they’re perfectly feminine and both names are beautiful! Good luck!

I voted [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f], but like other posters have said, [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] would be a better spelling.

[name_u]Finley[/name_u] is strictly male where I live and [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] is a place near me. They both look horrendous with the -ee ending but I guess [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f] is more bearable.

I voted for [name_f]Hadlee[/name_f]. I prefer [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], but you should spell it however you want. I actually have [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] and [name_u]Finley[/name_u] on my lists also, but I have [name_u]Finley[/name_u] on my boy list.

Same here! I don’t know any boy [name_u]Finley[/name_u]'s (irl) but know two girl [name_u]Finley[/name_u]'s. I also prefer the spellings [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] and [name_u]Finley[/name_u]. I also agree that choosing a very feminine middle name would be best for both choices. That said, I actually voted for [name_u]Hadley[/name_u]. It’s growing on me and has such charm to it.

I have a [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] so of course I love that one. I do prefer the original spelling though too.

However I love [name_u]Finley[/name_u] too and it is on my list for another girl. I currently have two girls [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] and [name_u]Presley[/name_u].

[name_f]Hadlee[/name_f], which I do like for a girl, but please, use the [name_u]Hadley[/name_u] spelling, because, being a [name_u]Haley[/name_u] who’s mum wanted to be ‘different’ with spelling - it sucks having to correct everyone all the time.
