For heaven's sake, it's a FINNISH name! Lift your Americocentric eyes away from the glasses that show USA as the only country that counts and English as the only acceptable language! I might giggle at names that sound fun in my mother tongue, but I don't judge them as "horrible" or "impossible" or "names that would be mean to give a child", because that would only be true if the child lived in my home country. Most people on earth don't know a single word of English and do NOT live in America.
