We Shall Call You...


Finn Ryan Keenan
It is so exciting to finally have a name for our baby boy!  I just love saying things like "Finn's room" or "when Finn is here...".  Liam uses Finn's name all the time, especially when he's doing pretend play.  It is so sweet to hear the name out of Liam's mouth; I can't wait 'til his newest playmate is actually here!

So, how did we decide?  Once we knew the baby was a boy, we were fairly confident that we wanted to use another Irish name.  You can read about how we named Liam here.  After tossing around some different ideas, we fairly quickly decided on Finn!  I was a bit hesitant initially since it seems to be quickly becoming a popular name, but that happened with Liam's name too...oh well.  I love how well Liam & Finn fit together!  I also love that it too is a literary name (Huckleberry Finn), which may just translate into some fun nicknames!  We like using family names for the middle name, and since we both have a brother named Ryan it was a perfect fit!
Other names we considered:

Kane
Barrett
Pierce

Naming him is just one step closer to actually meeting him!  We can't wait for your arrival Finn!

  1. Yay!! I LOVE the name Finn, but it sounds ridiculous with our "F" last name. :) I think it sounds great with Liam too, but isn't too matchy matchy.

  2. I LOVE it! I've always liked that name and I'm kind of bummed I can't use it considering my last name is Flinn! Ryan is another favorite of mine as well!

  10. As you probably know Finn is my dog's name and we LOVE it. Actually his full name is Finnley and I chose that because it means "light haired courageous one" which I thought was so perfect for my little blonde stray! Love it and I love Liam & Finn together! xo
