The name Fina is believed to have originated from an old name for the Lámi people, the Finns, paired with Aroman suffix -ia and later just -a to indicate "land of". The Finn name was often used in the early Viking Age, being the name which the original !Norse settlers used for the Lámi. The name Finn is likely derived from the !Old Norse word finna, further deriving from the proto-Dolchic finþanan meaning "to find." This likely referred to the Lámi's hunter-gatherer lifestyle, where they "found" their food rather than grow it. The term was dropped for the Finan Sapp, and the native language-derived Lámi, however does survive through its modern use as a component of the etymology of the country which houses the people for which it is named.
