Interestingly Jespersen chose "finni" to mean Finnish. As far as I'm aware it's the only root word in NL with a double consonant.

NL on the internet gives Finland as "Finland" (the Swedish name for the country) or "Suomi" (the Finnish name for the country). However, the many countries like Islande, Nederlande suggest that is a typo or oversight, so we're using "Finlande". Nov ialiste 21:46, 1 februare 2007 (UTC)
