Does anyone know if this name would be a family of Finnish-speaking people or Swedish-speaking? Anyone familiar of any family in Finland by this name? I have a friend who knows this name in her background but not sure how to find where the people came from (she believes it was Finland)

One name cannot really prove the language spoken, but...

Ismon is the genitive form of the given name Ismo, ie "Ismo's".


Ismo is a Finnish male's name. High probability that he was a Finnish speaker.

Thanks Hasse! I hope someone might reply who knows someone with that name.
