FīNIS SUBTīLIS > FIN > FINESSE

This name derives from the Middle French “finesse”, meaning “fineness, subtlety”, from the Old French “fin”, meaning “subtle, delicate”, which in turn derives from the Latin “fīnis subtīlis”, meaning “fine, subtle, sophisticated, witty, wise, precise, rigorous, simple, direct, straight to the point”. The modern meaning is "one who is smooth".
