Origin

Meaning

A snappy little name that comes from the Irish for 'fair'. Finn is a character in Irish mythology who was brought up in the forest. His boyhood adventures include accidentally acquiring knowledge of everything in the whole world, by eating a magical fish. The name only became popular around 2010, though why we waited so long is its own mystery! Its recent arrival however, gives it a winning contemporary feel, differentiating it from our more classic names.
