Karin (Female)-Finnish form of Katherine meaning "Pure".

Sari (Female)-Finnish form of Sarah meaning "Princess".

Jorma (Male)-Finnish form of Jeremiah, I am not exactly sure of the precise meaning of this name but it is definitely a derivative of it.

Hannu(Male)-Finnish form of John.

Olavi (Male)-Finnish form of Olaf.

Tanja (Female)-Finnish form of Tanya.
