Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Welcomes Son Logan Phineas

Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Welcomes Son Logan Phineas
Fame/Flynet

It looks like the creator of hit TV series Glee and American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy, is awfully fond of the name Finn. Not only is it one of the main characters on his show Glee, he also chose Phineas as the middle name for his newborn son with partner David Miller. They welcomed Logan Phineas Miller Murphy earlier this week. 

Logan has been a popular name for a while now, ranked at No. 20 last year and a fixture on the name charts for decades. Despite its mainstream success, it hasn't been a big name with celebrities. This will be the first celebrity baby named Logan to enter our NameCandy database. 

Phineas, on the other hand, has never been particularly popular in the U.S. with the general population. It had a brief turn in the spotlight when Julia Roberts named her son Phinnaeus, but otherwise it isn't a favorite with celebrities either. Finn, on the other hand, is quite popular, ranked No. 304 in 2011 and with five celebrity baby Finns in our database, including Tori Spelling's son born earlier this year. 

Finn is an obvious modern alternative to Phineas, however, we would think Phineas would also be more popular considering its use in books and on screen. Particulary as it is the name of a character in the Harry Potter books and in the classic novel A Separate Peace.

What do you think of the name Logan Phineas? Do you like the name Phineas on its own or do you prefer Finn?

I had to look up the Phineas in Harry Potter. He went by Nigellus. That is probably why I didn't remember it!

I thought of Phineas and Ferb first. Just saying. I think Logan is quite dated, but it's a nice name all in all.

The east coast of yacht charter Italy is less famous for its sailing potential and thus is less traveled and less equipped from a marina point of view. The sailors from that region prefer to go along the Croatian coastline. Yacht Charter italy

The name Phineas reminds me of that rowdy cartoon character.

Awesome, this was a really quality site. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good site… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.properties for sale in javea

To write an essay is conveying your thought on a certain subject. It is just the same with making a grand protest through your pen. Struggles for some can be sum up on an essay. So next time you plan to shout, hold it, get your computer and send it as a blog.
