Parents in the capital of Finland tend to call their children in one way or another depending on the area of residence, political views and wealth.
Researchers at the University of Helsinki found out what names are most often given to newborns in the metropolitan region.
Thus, in the Kallio and Kapyla districts, where green and socialists traditionally receive many votes, there are many names that are related to nature: for example, Aarni ("griffin" in Finnish) and Kaisla ("reed" in Finnish).
People who adhere to more conservative views like to give children "worthy and decent Finnish names": such as Urho and Paavo. At the same time, among the wealthy families of the capital most often can be met English or Swedish names - Olivia, Felix, Vincent, Stella and Benjamin.
Finns with an average income prefer to call children simply - Juho, Onni, Ilma and Lauri.
In the suburbs of Helsinki many foreign names have become popular, as there are many foreigners there. For example, you can meet little kids with such names as Aisha, Fatima, Ahmed and Ibragim.
