The name has two different origins: 1) From the Irish (Gaelic) “Fionnbharr / Fionnbarra”, composed of two elements: “Fionn” (white, fair) plus “barr” (head), and the meaning is “fair-headed one, white head”. 2) From the Irish (Gaelic) “biorach”, meaning “spear”. Saint Berach of Termonbarry, († 595) was a disciple of Saint Kevin and a celebrated Irish saint, whose memory is still celebrated in County Roscommon. He is honored in Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church.
