Ffiona is a beautiful Scottish name for girls meaning 'white' or 'fair'. The alternate form is its Gaelic spelling, Fiona. The name Ffiona was invented by the Scottish author William Sharp in the 19th century when he used it as a nickname, Fiona Macleod. But the name didn't become popular until 1990, when James Macpherson's Ossianic poems became widespread. Though the name originated from Scotland, it has various other origins. Ffiona can be considered a Latin name in the form of Fionn, meaning 'fair-haired', or an Anglicisation of the Irish name Fíona meaning 'vine'. Its origin is also associated with Welsh, the Celtic language of the Brittonic subgroup, where its native form 'Fion', means 'foxglove'. Aside from these origins, the name has variations in other languages like its Russian variant Faina, derived from the Old Greek name Phaenna meaning 'shining' or 'bright'; the Japanese form Fumiyo meaning 'well-read generation'; and its Arabic version Fahhama meaning 'very intelligent' or 'bright'. Recently, the name Ffiona has received widespread acceptance, being used as 'Fiona Cleary' in the best-selling novel 'The Thorn Birds' and as 'Princess Fiona' in Dreamwork's animated franchise 'Shrek'. Many people believe those named Ffiona are loving and caring, tend to put others' needs before theirs, are responsible and trustworthy, and possess musical talents. One of the most notable people named Ffiona is the American actress and singer Fiona Eileen Flanagan, known for her guest appearance on 'Miami Vice.'
