Meaning:Little fair one; Courageous one
While Finley is timeless, we think you'll adore its rarer cousin, Finnian. This masculine name is proudly Irish and derives from Fionnán, meaning "little fair one" or "courageous one." It draws power from Saint Finnian, an early monastic saint and founder of Clonard Abbey in County Meath, Ireland. This studious figure is known as "the master of Irish saints" after his dedication to education and spiritual growth. With a name as rich in faith as Finnian, baby will fearlessly embark on a journey for wisdom and deepen the connection to their Irish roots.
