I've got some Jalmars and Heikkis in my family tree. My grandma only spoke Finnish until she started school. When my sister was born Grandma kept trying to get my parents to give her a Finnish name. Tried to push it on me too. If she had her way I would have been named Taimi.

Most of these name's aren't even close to being Finnish.

Got it

There's odd amount of Jarno's in motorsports here. I have a theory that every single non-Finnish Jarno has at least a passing interest in motorsports. Proven true so far
