Reply to: bedeutung/meaning by sirkka

Sirkka derives from the Finnish word "sirkku" (bunting [bird]).

As a first name it derives from the fairy tale "Prinsessa Lumisirkku ja kääpiöt" = 'Princess Snow-bunting and the dwarfs', which was the original title for the fairy tale "Snow-white" in Finland. Later the name of the girl in the fairy tale changed from Lumisirkku to Lumikki.


Sirkka kommt vom finnischen Wort "sirkku" (Ammer [Vogel]).

Als Vorname stammt er vom Märchen "Prinsessa Lumisirkku ja kääpiöt" = 'Prinzessin Schneeammer und die Zwerge', dem Originaltitel des Märchens "Schneewittchen und die 7 Zwerge" in Finnland. Später wurde der Name des Mädchens im Märchen in Finnland von Lumisirkku in Lumikki verändert.

Viele Grüße
