View Full Version : Is this name Finnish?

Easter greetings to you all! Hope you all had a lovely Easter.

Just a quickie from me today, (yes, I know it makes a change :D )

Please can you tell me if the surname SOROLA is a Finnish one?
No searches or anything need to be done, I am just interested in finding out if it is a Finnish name or not because I am finding a lot of references to Mexico.

Many thanks

On the Genealogical Society of Finland's website you can find a list of Finnish family names:

On left side of page, click "Personal Names"
On Right side of page find "Indexes of Family Names", click "Sukunimet" (book of Finnish Family names)

Best Regards!

Lovely! Thank you for that!
I think I can now stick to the possibility that my great aunt married a Finn with the name of Sorola and not a Mexican with the name of Sorola!
Phew! Thank God for that! I think that will make things much easier for me!
:D :D
