(finn-OO-la) I really like this name Fionnuala was one of the Children of Lir, an old Irish legend in which king Lir's four children were turned into swans by there stepmother for nine hundred years. Fionnuala was the eldest and she gaurded her three brothers on the stormy waters. Her name fitted her person so neatly as she was a strong and graceful swan.

Fionnuala is derived from the Irish words fionn meaning "white" and guala meaning "shoulder."
