Lovely names! Tolvo is my favorite, but I also like Kulta and Kallis.

I really like Rikas and Toivo.

Some random suggestions. Maybe it'll spark something in your mind that clicks for him.

Rakas = Beloved

Helmi = pearl

Topaasi = topaz

Juma = literally "the heavenly". In Finnish mythology he was the god of thunder and lightning.

Pekko = Finnish god of corn and barley and beer.

That would be amazing if you could keep one of the boys!

As for names? I like Into the best

Helmi (as suggested by Romy) is my grandmother's name.

I love the idea of naming a pet Kulta, while it literally translates to "gold" it is used to mean something similar to "honey" or "sweetie." Mothers use it to refer to their children, boyfriends their girlfriends, etc. It can refer to either gender, but I always thought of it as a more feminine name.

I like Into, but I think a lot of people will mispronounce it as the english work "into." In fact, I bet most people are mispronouncing the "o" in the word as they read it in their mind right now! :P

The only boy pets that I've given Finnish names to were a mouse and a Robin that I rehabbed. The mouse was named Henka (which doesn't mean anything, it's just a cutesy nickname for Henri) and the Robin's name was Sika (which is Finnish for pig, he ate a lot).

Here are a couple more name suggestions (I love names and had to butt in- lol):

Onni: Happiness

Kye: Rejoice

Armas: Dear

Jessie, just curious, but what language is "Kye?" It doesn't look like a Finnish word and my translator program didn't recognize it as such. In Finnish the "y" makes a sound sort of like the english "oo," so, if Kye were Finnish, it would be pronounced sort of like Koo-eh.

I like the suggestions of Onni and Armas, both sound very strong, but have sweet meanings.

I know. I DO really like Kulta, but the other meanings throw me off (they do sound too feminine).

I'm digging Into (pronounced Eeen-toe), and Toivo, but there are other Finkies that have been named/have Toivo in their reg names. Koru was my original "OMG I found the perfect name!" find, until I kept searching and came up with these others LOL. Ugh. Names are difficult

I also don't mind if most people can't pronounce his name right off the bat - everyone at trials and such says Kimma's name wrong (it's pronounced Key-mah, but everyone says Kim-ah), so I'm used to it
