Finchley Central
Finchley Central was recorded as Finchelee-leya c.1208 and it is possible that the name is derived from what can be interpreted as a finch clearing (meaning the bird) and the Old English leah, 'a forest' - 'the clearing in the forest with the finches'. More likely, the wording is from a personal name Finc - meaning 'Finc's Forest'. The name has many spellings and was recorded as Fyncheley in 1547.

The station was opened by the Great Northern Railway as FINCHLEY & HENDON on 22 August 1867; it became FINCHLEY (CHURCH END) on 1 February 1894 and FINCHLEY CENTRAL on 1 April 1940; it was first used by Underground trains on 14 April 1940.
