This pretty Celtic name was invented by a poet, James Macpherson, in his long poem called Ossian. It does have an ancient meaning though, as it comes from the word 'Fionn', which is Gaelic for 'fair', or 'clear'. This lovely name has since been adopted by movies and books of all sorts. Its inventor James Macpherson could never have imagined it, but today, Fiona is one of our best-loved baby names for little girls!
