Fionnuir/Fionur/Finore/Fennore are Irish equivalents ot the Welsh Gwenhwyfar (King Arthur's wife Guinevere) and the modern Jennifer (from the Cornish who spell it Jenifer). Gwen means "white/fair/holy" and the second part is usually said to mean "ghost/spirit/phantom" even "fairy" and sometimes "wave".
