Roots

The AmericanHeritage Dictionary has no Indo-European “root” for FINITE or FINISH. Latin finis means “end,“ but  noboy knows where the Romans got it from.

פנה FaNaH means to pass away or WANE (Jeremiah 6:4 – shift biabial).  It is related to the many Pey-Noon pointers at POINT. 


Branches

There  are words like FINAL, FINALITY, IN FINITE and UNFINISHED in English.  From the Latin, one can expect many F-N words of fading away and ending.   Of these, French fin  (end) succinctly captures the Phey-Noon/FN ending. Spanish fenecer (conclude, die) widens and deepens the sense of WANING and VANISHING.   Spanish fin also means “end” as goal and purpose, getting to the POINT of the end.       See VANISH for related bilabial-nasals like WANE.
