I rather want some Finn to tell me what it means instead of trusting Wikipedia.

It's just a surname. There are many different geographical names like Ruotsalainen 'Swede', Virolainen 'Estonian', Suomalainen 'Finn' and Venäläinen 'Russian'.
2020-01-22 10:16
Kazakhstan Tripper^^ 
Do they have any kind of meaning? Like if there would be a person like "Venalainen" does it mean he really has Russian roots?
2020-01-22 10:23
Not that i have heard

Interesting, it just makes me wonder how you guys came up with such last names. Are they "modern" so to say, I mean after all Russia isn't that old country in its current state or are those last names "old"?
2020-01-22 10:35
Finland Karppanator 
The surnames I mentioned are pretty old as a collective. From the ones I collected for you, all were commonly used as surnames all the way from the 1500's. Nowadays these surnames don't necessarily have the connection to the country despite the surname.
2020-01-22 10:44
Kazakhstan Tripper^^ 
So, their ancestors could have Swedish, Estonian or Russia etc. Ancestors and thus they got their surname? Am I on right tracks or did I misunderstand it?
2020-01-22 10:46

It's certainly possible. Now bear with me, I don't currently have the time to translate wikipedia correctly onto here so enjoy google translate: Swedish is a Finnish surname. While the West Finns were part of the Swedish Empire, the Orthodox Karelians called the Lutheran Finns the 'Swedes'. It was not uncommon for the surname to be given by someone outside the community. In the community, people were often known by first names, and houses were also often named after the first name of the founder or host of the house. Outsiders, such as travelers, needed different names to be able to navigate wider areas. There were Pentti and Antti and Pentti houses and Antti houses in almost every village, which made them somehow separate. An additional nickname was required. The general basis for the additional designation was domicile. Names could also be given to a prominent feature of the inhabitants, such as occupation, religion, appearance, or ethnicity. For example, Karelians could name a Lutheran house or settlement and their inhabitants as Swedish. When these names began to be inherited, they had become surnames.

The surname Venäläinen could have originated from the fact that the family was Orthodox instead of Lutheran. Or that the family was originally from Russia, same with Virolainen and Estonia. Most Finnish surnames are relatively young in general.

Kind of, but only according to the Finnish standard. Right/Left-wing is very different from a country to another

xaxaxa remember his campaign? "Meillä taitaa olla sama suunta?" ("I think we have the same direction/objective", he was driving a bus in that video). Well I didn't get fired...
2020-02-12 22:54
Yes there is, obviously. None of the political parties in the Govt are left enough to be considered left wing imo, but there are a lot of people. For the sake of clarity, left wing begins from an anti-capitalist and anti-imperial stance. Everything to the right of that is not leftism in my books.
2020-01-14 18:23
Finland fiGe 
You're conflating Leftism with Left Wing, but I'm not surprised a guy named AnarchoCommunist with a Venezuelan flag does so
2020-01-22 14:51
I didnt conflate anything actually. There is no one definition that fits every situation and it depends entirely on the context. I.e. In colloquial speak anything thats left from the status quo can be called "left wing" and leftism works more or less the same. However that definition is just one possible. In left circles it is typical to qualify leftism to begin from an anti-capitalist stance, like I do. Which is precisely why I added a qualification to what constitutes as leftism in my books.

>left wing begins from an anti-capitalist and anti-imperial stance. Everything to the right of that is not leftism in my books. Left-wing politics supports social equality and egalitarianism, often in opposition to social hierarchy. It typically involves a concern for those in society whom its adherents perceive as disadvantaged relative to others as well as a belief that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished.

Wow you can copypaste from Wikipedia! I'm talking to some simpleton here, arent I? So whats your point, are you capable of an independent thought or extrapolation from what you've just c+p'd?

Nationalist in culture but centre-right on capitalism but want to abolish EU back to trade union and remove the elements of 2nd USSR from it, but as i support our welfare system, im bit left wing, but as i see that our welfare system is used by ppl who want free money and refuge shoppers, im nationalist in that regard. Hopefully this gives you some insight. You are welcome to ask me a guestion and imma ansver it today.

Not a Finnish person, but I live in Finland and date a Finnish girl. I am a communist so very left wing, turning my sweet girl to a commie as well haha. I think the problem is that so many in Finland, like anywhere else, dont really understand politics, class or economy in any kind of nuanced way. So they are easily swayed by brainless right wing / nationalist arguments and never really get to hear the real left (which is not Vasemmistolito - even though they are far better than the rightist parties).

"I am a communist" "the problem is that so many in Finland, like anywhere else, dont really understand politics" This made me laugh, thanks man :DD
2020-01-14 21:11
You're a good example of what I said bro. For example you have a certain untrue and simple idea of what being a communist means, which you've gained through the filter of our modern capitalist society & media especially. Am I wrong? If you've actually read Marx and you disagree, we can have an interesting chat. Otherwise Im just wasting my time with an uneducated boy.

Communism is a great ideal but works very poorly in practice. Ask the russians if you don't believe me.
2020-01-23 01:20
USSR was not a communist state, but thats a pretty lame thing to say in defence. I'll just say that it was the first major attempt at creating a communist state, it had many huge problems but it also made some incredible achievements. First capitalist nations were not like they are now in inception, perfecting the systems takes time. We just need the better system.
