Our nephew

We just learned the name of the boy that was born to E.’s brother Olli and his wife Tiina back in December, Aino’s new baby brother: Matias Onni Johannes. Matias and Johannes are common enough Finnish names, but Onni is a little different. It means “happiness” or “luck,” and here’s hoping he’ll have plenty of both in his life.

Knowing the way Finns like to make nicknames, I suspect he’ll probably be known as Matti, although one never knows for sure.
