Editor’s note: This post was originally published on September 1, 2008 and was substantially revised on April 16, 2012 and again on July 8, 2013. He’s simple, straightforward, and quite fashionable. Thanks to Kim for suggesting today’s Name of the Day: Finn.


Finn Davey: Starbaby Birth Announcement


Tori and Dean have done it again!  Welcome to the world, Finn Davey. Finn joins big sisters Stella Doreen and Hattie Margaret, brother Liam Aaron and Dean’s son, Jack. The McDermotts tend to choose names that are rising favorites.  Finn is no exception.  He ranked #304 in 2011, down from #299 in 2010.  But he’s […]
