Finbar Origin and Meaning

The name Finbar is a boy's name of Irish origin meaning "fair-haired".

This is an ancient saints' name well used in Ireland but a rarity here and unlikely to ever reach the popularity of other Finn-ish names. St. Finbarr (the more common spelling) is the patron saint of Cork and in Irish folklore, Finbarr was king of the fairies.
