About Finnlay

Go back to names list

Finnlay is a variant spelling of the Gaelic name, Finlay. Occasionally cropping up as a girls name, Finlay is the anglicized form of Scottish name Fionnlagh. Fionnlagh comes from Gaelic words for ‘white, fair’ + ‘warrior, hero’. This is reinforced by the presence of an Old Norse name ‘finnleikr’, meaning “battle hero”.
