Personal Impression
You'd have to be insane and foolhardy to name your son this in Finland today. The name is associated with old men, and it sounds hopelessly dated and even quite geeky. This reminds me of being in elementary school, when we had a substitute teacher and we decided to come up with fake names and write them on name tags. Of course, one of the guys was Ilmari. And of course the substitute teacher wasn't fooled.

It's an old name. Originated from word 'ilma' which means air in English. Ilmarinen is mentioned in Mikael Agricola's 'Psalttari' in 1551 to be an heathen god from Häme.
