First of all, I looked up the name Avara and it is not Finnish, but Sanskrit meaning "the youngest"(and it is definitely a girl's name). Pretty cool, it should be added here along with these other Finnish names I remembered...
Aarne (M)- Finnish form of Arnold Heikki (M)- Finnish form of Henry ( if this is already here then exclude it).
Elviira (F)- Finnish form of Elvira Inka (F)- i know thia name has an entry here but it is also a short of form of the Finnish name Inkeri so it is essentially a Finnish form of Inga. Miia (F)- Finnish form of Mia Aliisa (F)- Finnish form of Alice or Alicia Eliina (F)- Finnish form of Helen along with te name Helena
