Finnigan is a misspelling of Finnegan. I first heard this name on a silly little boy that was my cousin's cousin (!) and thought it was rather dorky. The name, and nickname Finn, slowly grew on me until now it is one of my favorites. I prefer the spelling with the two i's perhaps because I am such a Harry Potter fan and Seamus Finnigan is a character.

This is an Irish surname derived from the name Finn, meaning "white; fair-haired."
