User comments for Finnegan
Finnegan Bell was the name of the main character in the movie "Great Expectations" played by Ethan Hawke. It has always been one of my favorite names.
In the Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling, Finnegan is the surname of Harry's dorm mate, Seamus.
I like this name, but I'm surprised nobody is reminded of the common children's limerick: "There was an old man named Michael Finnegan / He had whiskers on his chin-igan / They grew out and they grew in-igan / Poor old Michael Finnegan! Begin again." I imagine someone with the name Finnegan would be Irish, witty, whiskered, and have an excellent sense of humor.
In the Star Trek (TOS) episode Shore Leave, Finnegan is the name of an upperclassman who tormented Captain Kirk when they were at the Starfleet Academy.
