Scandinavia is not baltic[edit]

I never heard anybody refer to Scandinavia (Norway,Denmark,Sweden) as baltic. If we cannot provide a source for this then teh sentence should be removed.

baltic region =/= baltic states

Defining the extent and limits of an exotic region[edit]

Hm.. the more I click my way around on these pages, the more I come to realize that perspectives and understandnings on all these exotic regions and continents vary and are highly subjective and even biased. Perhaps the English usage is much more inconsistent, unprecise and overlapping than the native-speakers' usage. If so, this is similar to other vaguely-defined regions that are found in the minds of distant groups of people and mean different things to them. See also Talk:Siberia, Talk:Latin America, Talk:Scandinavia, Talk:Middle East and Talk:Balkans, and also exonym versus autonym for similar discussions of namings and meanings. //Big Adamsky 18:23, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

The Grand Duchy of Finland was called 'Baltic' under imperial Russia?[edit]

Please provide a source for this bit of information. Otherwise, the sentence should be removed. Clarifer 11:41, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
