I have a question about fingers:

How common is it in languages of the world to have diffenrent names for the
4 other fingers than the thumb? Names that are not only a distinction of
sizes or order?

I know that there aresuch names in French but not English. What's about the
other languages?

It is to know if I really need to create names for the 4 little fingers in
addition of the generic word for finger or if people don't really need to be
so specific or are confortable with using size/order distinction
