Finnish country names
Finnish country names
Pretty stupid names. I don't like these.
'Puola' literally means 'they are attacking' in Lithuanian
Turkki and Tšekki sound so cute. Also wtf is that United Kingdom?
they don't understand what an F is
I like them. Specially how the svea and rus (Sweden and Russia) are other way around.
"saksa" what have done to deserve this name?
French fries are called ranskalaiset in Finnish, or literally the French. We put the French into the oven.
i like that
ñ = nj
That's like saying "Vereinigtes Königreich" instead of "UK"
i, uh, like our name
This. Letter 'f' is pronounced 'ähvä'.
except that YK refers to united nations (yhdistyneet kansakunnat) instead of the united kingdom, so everyone will just use britannia in a casual conversation
I wish someone would just put us out of our misery
It's yhdistynyt kuningaskunta, literally united kingdom. But obviously no-one says that in real life, it's just britannia or englanti
You mean pritannia
et taida tietää, mitä britannias tapahtu
More like ESpanja :DD:DDDXDDD
On other names I'm pretty neutral if compared to english ones, but tsekki is 1000% better than czech republic, it's so much easier to use in normal conversation
It's kinda strange, because until we had contact with greeks we didn't have the F too.
Modern Fyodor - Old Hyodorie
Modern Feofan - Old Heofanie
implying anyone ever talks about Czech Republic
F, c, x, z, q and w are just useless made up letters, I'm glad we don't use them in other than retarded loan words
'Alankomaat' sounds like some sort of device, like 'bankomat'
Well, if you are into hockey or beer you probably will, otherwise no
we just refer to the whole place as "england" t.b.h.
USA is Yhdysvallat and Canada is Kanada
I think we need to rename yhdysvallat, it roughly translates to united powers and that's too chad name for them
USA is jenkkilä
You can also call it Amerikan Yhdysvallat
Would be a better option for official name also
Is "Ruotsi" related to "Russia" and "Rus"?
it comes from roslagen
Rus was founded by Finns
It comes from the old Swedish equivalent of ”rowing”. Varangians spread the name apparently
It can also say Iso-Britannia.
Hey, don't push me.
Kuningas is a Germanic loan word.
No it isn't. It's "äf".
Ee ollu ku ähäävä! Älä sie ala kuul miulle rammatiikas pättee, pojal'lopp' suaatana!
Yes, if you are some inbred savonian hillbilly
Sweden in English should be Rowland
My philosophy teacher calls Japan "Japania".
well that just looks silly
what do you call england?
Based. The first Norwegian king was also a Finn.
Tell xim it's actually Japonia and that it makes you cringe when he says it wrong
You know it's not pronounced Uck right, it's short for United Kingdom.
Englanti. Also we call the whole country englanti in normal conversation, yhdistynyt kuningaskunta is used at most as often as united kingdom in english
we don't say yhdistynyt kuningaskunta
Tyttö suree Tapaniaan,
tämä tarina sijoittuu Japaniaan.

How do you say yhdistynyt kuningaskunta.
that wasnt too hard
He claims "Japania" is more logical because we have Romania and Bulgaria etc.
yhdistynyt kuningaskunta is used at most as often as united kingdom in english
is fucking wrong
go back to posting about your farts in mämmi
Exactly like it’s written. If you want to hear it go to google translate, choose Finnish, write it and press play
Italian names are easy to pronounce for Finns so almost all the Italian cities are known with their original name.
Even Nice in France is known as Nizza in Finnish.
