Name Component Lexicon

View resource name in all available languages



All name components with some frequency in the Swedish place name bank in Finland are presented in the lexicon. There is an emphasis on material from the most common name elements, out of which the majority of the place names are built. In addition to this suffixes and certain word endings are considered, as well as the most common types of loan names.
