EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Finnic *soomi or (in view of suomalainen) *sooma. There are several hypotheses:

Cognates include Estonian Soome and (borrowed) Northern Sami Suopma. The first hypothesis implies cognacy with Proto-Finnic *hämä (Tavastia), from *šämä, and (probably borrowed) Proto-Samic *sāmē (Sami person).
