Finn Wolfhard is a Canadian actor. He is known for starring in the show Stranger Things and the film Stephen King’s It. 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 Irish, English, Scottish, and Welsh ancestry.

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 Wilhemina 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 Charles Eugene Jolivet and Pauline Helene Vaillant/Vaillent, who were both born in Paris, France; Pauline’s mother was of Welsh descent. Finn’s great-grandmother Beatrice was born in London, England, the daughter of James Latouche and Mary Cummings/Cummins/Crimmins.

Finn’s maternal grandmother was Patricia Mary “Trish” Lynch (the daughter of Arthur Louis Lynch and Janet Hunter Elizabeth Doughty). Patricia was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Arthur was born in Carleton, Ontario, Canada, of Irish descent, and was the son of William Joseph/John Lynch and Ann “Annie” Josephine Mullin. Janet was born in Essex, England, the daughter of George Bell/Sell Doughty and Janet Hunter Kerr, who was of Scottish descent.
