Fenella is, in the book So Long and Thanks for All the Fish (A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book), what Arthur Dent think's Fenchurch's nickname, Fenny, is short for before he meets her. Then he finds out it's short for Fenchurch. Hitchhikers will get it :)

I like this name quite a lot really, it's quite unusual and rare and that's part of the reason why I like it so much, but also probably because it reminds me of fennel, which is rather a nice herbal, shrub-like plant that you can also eat. :)

Also, I'd like to add that a famous bearer of this name is British actress Fenella Fielding (b. 17 November 1927). :)

Fenella Woolgar is a brilliant British actress. She's been in Doctor Who and Jekyll to name a few.

I always thought Fionnuala was pronounced fin-OO-la, so an anglicization would be more like Finula or Finoola.
