Who named our fingers? Why are they called pinky, ring, middle, index, and thumb?


I understand the ring finger is where we put a wedding ring, but only on the left hand. The middle finger is obviously in the middle, but THUMB? and PINKY? and INDEX? or is it POINTER?Even google could not give me a better explanation :(
