Nimet - Väestörekisterikeskus = Finnish name data tables

Palvelut kansalaisille,Tilastot,Väestötietojärjestelmä
Clare's insight:

Here's the link to PDFs of Finnish name data from 2007-2015. The first list is names among Finnish speakers, the second list is Swedish speakers.

 

Once you've opened a document, the first two columns are the top 50 names overall (girls then boys), and the last two columns are the top 50 first names (girls then boys).

 

What with this and Scotland, it's like Christmas and a birthday all come at once.

Mystery Monday: Quant

Mystery Monday: Quant | Name News | Scoop.it
Today’s name is a rather-modern sounding late 16th C Swedish name — or, at least, a name found in Sweden. Between 1591 and 1597, in a list of innkeepers from Stockholm, the same man shows up named Quant, Quante, and Qwant. While it’s reasonable to assume that most of Stockholm’s innkeepers were Swedish, there are other names in the list that show distinctly non-Swedish (generally more German) influences, so it’s entirely possible that Mr. Quant is not Swedish himself.
