The organisation was founded in 1953, and the name FINBEL was created as an acronym of the initial letter of the founding member states. It became FINABEL when Germany (Allemagne) joined in 1956, shortly after West Germany was rearmed in 1955.

Later, the name has been kept as a proper noun, written in lower-case, when membership further expanded.

Until 2004, Finabel was founded by armies which belonged to both NATO and WEU, then the Chiefs of the Armies decided to open Finabel to all EU member States.
