FERNE McCann has admitted opinions are “divided” over her newborn girl’s name – but admitted she never intended to choose a “bad” name.
The 32-year-old, who is already a mother on Sunday, welcomed her second daughter on July 6.
Earlier this week, Ferne announced that she decided to name her little one, who she shares with fiancé Lorri Haines, Finty.
The choice of nickname has fans divided – and Ferne took to Instagram to speak out about it.
Ferne said: “Now the name… I knew it would split some hairs but I just think if you go for a popular name, an unusual name, no matter what name you go for there will always be a few people.” will not please me. It just is.
“But we all grow into our names and she’s such a little finty.”
She added, “Besides…let’s be honest. I couldn’t have gone for a standard name because it had to fit Sunday.”
“I named my daughter after a day of the week…
“Wednesday. Wednesday could have been a great vibe.”
Ferne explained how the couple chose the name OK! magazine: “It was on my name list when I gave birth to Sunday.
“I don’t know where I got it from, but when I put it in [on Google] I saw that Judi Dench’s daughter’s nickname is Finty.
“I’ve always loved it and have never heard it anywhere else.
“I just feel so connected to the name — she came out and was just Finty.
“I think she sounds like a character from Bridgerton.”
Ferne and Lorri got engaged while on vacation last July.
The couple started dating in 2021.
Ferne shares her eldest son with ex Arthur Collins on Sunday.
