Anatomical terminology

The little finger, or pinky finger (in American English), also known as the fifth digit, or pinkie, is the most ulnar and smallest finger of the human hand, opposite the thumb, and next to the ring finger.

Etymology

The word "pinky" is derived from the Dutch word pink, meaning "little finger". In some places "pinky" is also a traditional name for the smallest (youngest) child in a family (especially, when father and mother have 3 children).[citation needed]

The earliest recorded use of the term pinkie is in Scotland in 1808,[1]
