What is the nickname of Finland and how did it get the name Finland?
In Finnish, Finland is called "Suomi." There is much debate about the etymology of this word, but it is often thought to have originally meant "swamp." In English and Scandinavia, the word "fen" also means "swamp," and this is the origin of the name "Finland"--it all means "swamp land."

The nickname of Finland is the land of a thousand lakes. FI or FIN There really isn't other names in English. (But on the internet, some call it Winland... Go figure) Fin…land is 'Suomi' in Finnish... In Finnish, Finland is called "Suomi", and it's abbreviation is FI or FIN. But Finland actually does not have any "nicknames".
Why not? I assume you mean "Why does Finland exist?," or, "How did Finland form?" Finland was formed by the Treaty of Versailes, which ended World War One. EDIT: No, Finland… wasn't formed by the Treaty of Versailles. Finland is an older nation which has been under the Swedish empire and later the Russian empire. Finland became independent from Russia (Finland had autonomy) in 1917-1918 (Yes, after WWI) through Finland's own effort. And without bloodshed. :)
First people who came to Finland, were called "finns". So therefore, Finland is the "land of finns". Dont ask how the finns got their names. Also, in Finland, Finlands name is… Suomi. And that doesent stand for anything. The whole name of Finland was actually made by others than finns.
I am sorry to inform you that Finland is not a person, rather Finland is a Country located in nothern Europe between Russia and Sweden. Current president of Finland is Tarja H…alonen.
The locals call it "Stadi"
Finland's money is not a dollar. Finland uses euros.
You can get to Finland with a ferry from Tallinn, Stockholm or StPetersburg, take a plane to Helsinki or Rovaniemi, or via road fromRussia, Sweden or Norway.
Depends where you are. Usually a plane might help the process of getting to a new country.
