The first or the given name of the baby is chosen by baby's parents and the surnames are inherited either patrilineally or matrilineally. Finnish baby names are generated from a variety of dissimilar traditions. In 1921, the first national act on names came into force in Finland and it made surnames mandatory. Between 930 and 1985, a married woman took her husband's surname was became mandatory. Finnish baby's first name is often of Christian origin, however Finnish and Swedish origins are also common.
