Finley for a girl

Another celebrity has named his daughter Finley. It's a D-List celeb, but it still makes headlines. Daniel Baldwin and his wife Joanne named their daughter Finley Rae. Angie Harmon and her husband have a daughter named Finley Faith. The name Finley was never on the popularity charts for girls until celebs started using this name. When a celeb uses a name, it's destined to become popular unless it's something totally bizarre like Apple or Bandit. I hate seeing Finley on a girl. It's not feminine. It's not cute. It's definitely not unique. The name went up 200 places on the popularity charts in one year. If Finley becomes super popular for girls you can cross off any "Finn" names for boys. So please, anyone who is a fan of these names for boys don't let your friends and family name their daughters Finley. Don't forget to mention popularity. Back it up with proof if you must. Parents like to claim that they love Finley for a girl because it's soooooooooo unique. Prove to them that it isn't and help them make a better choice for their child. You will also help save the "Finn" names for the boys.

I agree. It's not feminine. It's MUCH better on males.
