The origin of the word is not entirely clear but people generally favor the idea that it means the island of darkness or fog island. Reasoning: The Norwegian word skodde means… fog and avia means island in Norwegian. On old maps, Scandinavia is often shown as an island, and as people's knowledge of world geography was then quite limited, then this interpretation is likely correct. For more information about Scandinavia, visit http://goscandinavia.about.com Avia is not 'island' in Nordic languages, the right word is Ã¸ or Ã¸y, for which there is no modern English equivalent. The German letter Ã¶ is roughly the same.
As an ethinic and linguistic group Sweden, Norway, Demark, Iceland,and the Faeroe Islands are all Scandinavia. Culturally andgeographically Finland is often included in that g…roup as well
Look in the top middle of Europe. A little more to the right actually but Denmark is also part of Scandinavia so yeah north middle... :D
Answer . Yes.
Genetically the main group is Germanic (like e.g. in Germany and the Netherlands), but already 1.000 years ago groups of Slavonic people also settled in parts of Denmark and S…weden facing towards present day Poland (and North-eastern Germany). To the very North of the Scandinavian peninsula approx. 100.000 Sami people live - they have most likely been there longer than the Germanic Scandinavians, but nobody knows for sure. Some pople - especially outsiders - sometimes include Finland in their definition of Scandinavia (which makes perfect sense from a cultural, historical and political perspective, but never-the-less is not usually done by the 'true' Scandinavians themselves, who would use the term Nordic countries when including Finland). The Finns are not a Germanic people.
