An Abhainn Mhór is teora theas don mbf. seo agus is í An Airglinn, a shníonn isteach san Abhainn Mhór, is teora thoir dó. Is iad seo an dá abhainn is dóichí dá bhfuiltear ag tagairt san ainm ach níor mhór Abhainn na Fuinseann, ar teora thiar theas don mbf. agus Abhainn na Dúghlaise, ar teora thoir thuaidh dó, a chur san áireamh chomh maith.
