It means 'shampoo' in Indonesian.
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.
Pronounced SAHM-paw.
Despite being mythological, this name is really common in Finland, and it sounds very ordinary.
I'm sorry, but I don't like this name at all. It reminds me of shampoo.
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.
