>His name is Finn
>The name "Finn" is derived from Irish, it literally means "white"
>There is no way JJ Abrams did not know this
Why did they do this?
Because his given name was FN-2187, silly
if it was MK, his name would be Mike, if it was PL, his name would be Paul, etc. Finn just happened to work.
Also I'm pretty sure the same dude who names characters "Kylo" and "Poe" doesn't actually know or care that the name Finn is Irish or means white.
Pic related, a man literally named White. Spoiler alerts:
No one cared that his name was White.
I am on board with you that OP is retarded but its not like there is really an evil empire and he was really named FN-2187
Naming a fictional character finn and saying it comes from that is still creating a fictional character named finn. and the origin and meaning of that word are something you can choose as a director.
Yea but Finn is completely fictional. They could have named him anything they wanted, and they deliberately chose a name that means "White".
Pretty sure they gave him the name FN-2187 so he would be called Finn, not the other way around.
i don't know how you guys can't tell that I obviously realize they chose the name Finn for him. no one cares what his name is, again they could have just straight up named him White if they made his code WT or something. again, there are plenty of black people named White and no one cares. So a black man named Finn is hardly a cause of concern.
And if I'm not mistaken, they created all the characters and then did casting for men (of all races) to audition for the role of Finn. Boyega happened to be the guy who got the job.
>implying anyone gives a shit about the Irish language
Nice try McCarthy, your language is dead for a reason
