Kalevi or Teemu no longer of interest to the multi-culti crowd.
There are also hundreds of Finnish people with names such as Ali, Ibrahim, Omar or Hassan.
Only 20 years ago most Finns were worried about Russian hegemony, now everything is up for grabs, even traditional Finnish identity.
Immigration has led to Finnish first names diversifying, certainly since the 1960s and especially in the 2000s, says Minna Saarelma-Paukkala, who is chief of the almanac office at the University of Helsinki.
“More Muslim and Russian nomenclature has come in, but migrants from the Vietnam and countries in Asia and Africa have also brought new names with them,” Saarelma-Paukkala says.
Thousands of Finns with any variation of the first name Mohammed already exist. There are also hundreds of Finnish people with names such as Ali, Ibrahim, Omar or Hassan.
According to the expert the majority of these names occur in families of foreign extraction, while Finns with little to no foreign heritage are still slow to adopt certain non-Finnish varieties.
