Finn Wolfhard is a Canadian actor and musician. He is known for starring in the show Stranger Things and the film It (2017). His brother is actor Nick Wolfhard.

He has said:

[Finn’s] my given, full name. Finn’s not short for anything; it’s just Finn Wolfhard. And then Wolfhard means, I think, heart of the wolf in German. What’s funny is I’m German, but then I’m like French – I’m French and German and then Jewish. It’s really weird. I have really weird blood. And then I go to Catholic school, which is really weird.

Finn also has English and Welsh ancestry.

Finn’s great-great-aunt was silent film and theatre actress Rita Jolivet.

Finn is likely descended from John Wolfgang Wolfhard, who was born, in 1903, in Bichofingen, Germany. John was the son of Karl A. Wolfhard and Mathilde Guth, and was married to Jane/Jeannie E./C. R. Banks.

Finn’s maternal grandfather was Lawrence Charles LaTouche Jolivet (the son of Alfred Eugene Jolivet and Beatrice Wilhelmina Theodora LaTouche). Lawrence was born in Dieppe, France, and raised at least partially in Stowe, England. Alfred was born in Surrey, England, the son of parents from Paris, France, Charles Eugene Jolivet, who owned vineyards in France, and Pauline Hélène Vaillant/Vaillent, a concert musician, whose own mother was of Welsh descent. Alfred’s sister, Finn’s great-great-aunt, was actress Rita Jolivet. Finn’s great-grandmother Beatrice was born in London, England, the daughter of James LaTouche and Mary Cummings/Cummins/Crimmins.
