    No words. I'm guessing it's pronounced "Phoenix"....

    I think Finnick is a genuine name - possibly named after Finnick Odair from Huner Games?

    Yep I agree genuine name most likely from the Hunger Games. We have a Finn and often call him Finnick (amongst others) as a nickname

    Finnick is a legit name. I think your Facebook friend has just forgotten to use an apostrophe.

    I encountered a little boy named Zozo at work. As far as I could tell no cultural significance. Is this a name others have heard and I've just been missing it?

    Hmmm just because it is a character in a movie, Hunger Games, doesnt make it a genuine name.

    The internet (100% accurate source of all knowledge) suggests Finnick originated as an English surname.

    Default Horrible baby names

    I actually love Finnick. 😳
    Would never use it because I'd seem REALLY into the hunger games (which I'm not.) haha

    Thanks for the info about the origin of the name Finnick. I had thought it was a made up name for the movie.

    It wasn't a friend it was on a public page so I've never heard it pronounced.
    Haven't seen Hunger Games, I thought it was just a made up twist on the spelling of Phoenix!
