Finnararagh is a corruption of Finnavogagh, the name of an area of rough pasture on the plateau W of this peak. The name is correctly recorded in the Ordnance Survey Name Book, but was misspelt when transferred to the map. The peak itself is locally called An Corrán, which aptly describes its crescent-shaped cliffs that dominate Lough Coomeen.   An Corrán is the 166th highest place in Ireland.
