Hello All,

The name Finnian (or "Finnen" with a fada over the "e") means "fair-haired", and is related to the Fenian (sic) Cycle in that one of its core characters is described as "fair", and from thence assumes the name Finn. Phyllis, I think it's Finn you mean, not Fionn, since to the best of my recollection (and memory is risky) Fionn is an entirely different name meaning "jewel".

- Da.
