Finola is a feminine name with Irish and Gaelic roots. A variant of names like Fionnuala and Finnguala, it translates to “white-shouldered and “fair-shouldered.” For a blossoming touch, baby would be sharing their name with the Finola tulip, or Double Late Tulip, which is known for its blend of white and pale pink petals. If you’ve got a love for mythology, Finola can also connect your little one to the main character of Children of Lir. In this Irish legend, Finola and her brothers were transformed into swans by their stepmother Aoife and cursed to wander the Irish rivers and lakes for 900 years. As baby learns more about the flora and fauna of the world around them, the name Finola can also help them hold onto their roots.
