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.
