Pre-Christian Finnish Proper Names Table

Here I present to you a d200 table of Finnish/Finnic “pagan” proper names, drawn from various historical sources. Some of these names still remain in usage today, with the bulk of them dating from approximately 5000 BCE to 1300 CE.

Personally I use the table for PCs/NPCs in my DCC RPG campaign set in a fantasy version of Iron Age Fennoscandia.

Cheerio,

MM

PS. A fan recently made a web app which generates names from the above list, check it out through this link. And thank you Toni Lappalainen!

  1. Great list. One thing about the formatting. If you format the table to have multiple columns side by side it should only take one page. This way you get a printable document that only takes one sheet of paper (instructions on the other side and the table on the other)

    1. Wow, this is very cool! I’ll add the link to the blog post.

      And it’d be great if you’d add the blog name to your link reference, so people know where they’re headed. 🙂
