I think it, in English, refers to the end of a lane and I'd somehow associated a structure with that so if anybody knows this Finnish surname, please let us know the translation...I've tried google but it's not so common as to be listed there.

I'm not sure of structures, but a literal translation would be the mouth of the alley / lane / path... perhaps it is a wide place at the beginning of a trail. That would be a nice place for a structure.

Of course, I could be all wet.

I have friends with the surname Kujala.

Good luck with your quest.

A more common name Joensuu means mouth of the river. Imagine how that applies to an alley. A place at the far end could be called Kujanpää.

Not so uncommon according to Population Register surname search (
