Finland-Swedes is the proper term. "Finnish Swedes" is not an established term, but it could be interpreted as people of Finnish origin living in Sweden. / Alarm 16:22, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. "Finnish Swedes" would definitely be misinterpreted as Finns living in Sweden, but I would also support Swedish Finns. – AxSkov () 09:15, 11 September 2005 (UTC)

What is the basis for determining Hjallis Swedish speaking?

I know he is fluent in Swedish and has got his education from a Swedish language business college but what about birth and mother tongue?? I find the claim surprising! It is not the first time I hear it though. It is a common image he holds among Finnish speakers. But is it just an image or a reality? I am not confident enough to delete the name but I don't believe in this claim. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dinji (talkcontribs) 16:37, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Ville Pusa[edit]

I thought Ville Pusa was a Sweden Finn rather than a Swedish-speaking Finn, but am I correct? (Hmm, what is the correct English term for a Sweden Finn who moves to Finland? The Finnish term would be suomenruotsinsuomalainen, I guess. :) --Silvonen (talk) 13:54, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Tony Halme

Was Tony Halme really Swedish-speaking Finn? I think that his first language was finnish but he studied in swedish-speaking school. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:48, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Puma Swede[edit]

She is definitely a Sweden Finn, as her article states also: born in Stockholm to parents from Finland. (talk) 21:59, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
