Possibly derived from "Sammas/Sampas", the mythological pillar which supported the sky with the North Star as a "nail" on its top and around which the sky turned. The Sampo mentioned in Kalevala was possibly a sacred statue depicting the real Sammas.

I'm sorry, but I don't like this name at all. It reminds me of shampoo.

Despite being mythological, this name is really common in Finland, and it sounds very ordinary.

Sampo was maybe the most important thing in Finnish mythology and Finland's national epic, Kalevala. It was a mill that could make money, salt and grain.
