Origin of the Name Finn

The origin of the name Finn was found in the archives. Variants of Finn include O'Finn, Maginn, Phin, Phinn, Phinney and Finucane. This name is found in the Annals that record the deaths of several Munster Bishops called O'Finn between the years 1020 and 1331. There were three septs, one of these being of County Sligo where they were Chiefs of Calry on the shore of Lough Gill. The County Sligo placename Coolavin is in Irish Cuil O'bhFinn, meaning 'the refuge of the O'Finns'. The leading family of another sept of O'Finn were erenaghs of Kilcolgan, County Galway , and the descendants of these are to be found in Connacht. The third sept, that of Feara Rois in South Oriel, fades out of the records after the Anglo-Norman invasion, though the name still survives there.
The Finn coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Finn descendants.
