Phineas is a boy's name of Hebrew origin, boasting an impressive lineage of leaders, lawyers, and esteemed artists. A variation of the Phinehas, meaning "Nubian" or "bronze-colored one," Phineas refers to the original natives that once ruled Egypt. Revered as great warriors, the Nubian people were famed for their archery, teaching their skills to the ancient Greek and Egyptian armies. But more than brawn and dexterity, the Nubians were also the inspiration for many of Egypt's oldest religious teachings and books. For an extra touch, Phineas may also mean "snake's mouth." Springing from this deep well of wisdom and innovation, Phineas emerges as an inspiring title for a little one born with a thirst for knowledge.
