What's in a Name? "Finn"

When we brought home our new little puppy on April 1, we had no idea what his name would be.  We threw out a few names to our Facebook friends and we came to an agreement with the name "Finn".  After reading the names meaning and origin this morning, I'd say that puppy has a lot to live up to!

Meaning and name origin
Finn \f(i)-nn\ as a boy's name is pronounced fin. It is of Irish, Gaelic and Old German origin, and the meaning of Finn is "white, fair". Mythology: Finn MacCumhail was a legendary Irish hero (third century) somewhat like the English Robin Hood. His warrior-followers were called Fenians or Fianna. The modern Gaelic form is Fionn. The name can also be used as a pet form of Finbar and similar names.
Finn has 3 variant forms: Fin, Fionn and Fynn.
For more information, see also related boy names Fingal, Finlay and Finnian.

Yesterday the name should have been "Jethro"... he was just a big ole' boy trying to have a good time....

This morning... hmmm... I think it should be "Roscoe"

But overall, I think we made the right decision... Finn is becoming more of a guardian everyday.  He is just 4 months old...he won't stop growing until he is 7 months old and guardians are not considered mature working adult until they are 18 months old.
