Thorfinn comes from Old Norse Þórfinnr, made up of Thor (the name of the Norse god of thunder) and Finnr meaning “Sámi, Finn, Laplander”, a byname used to refer to someone who came from Finland or was part of the Sami people (also known as Lapps). Although the origin behind  finnr is uncertain it has been linked to Old Norse meaning “wanderer”.
