Finn is another name that has an Irish origin, like Molly for female dogs. It is a popular name for male dogs who are hunters. The name Finn is translated into “fair.” In Irish mythology, Finn Mac Cumhail was the equivalent of the English Robin Hood and if you’re familiar with Irish history and lore, the Finians, his followers were great warriors. Finn is a suitable name for any dog that is considered to be a great hunter or warrior. More dogs named Finn are of a larger breed size including Labrador Retrieves, Golden Retrievers, Shorthairs, Pointers, Weimaraners and of course, the Irish Wolfhound who is the embodiment of the name. People who have a connection to Ireland or who are of celtic ancestry are most likely to name their male dogs Finn because it helps them to keep that connection alive.
