Requested move[edit]

Talk:Uusimaa (region)Uusimaa (region)Uusimaa – Currently there are two disambiguation pages for Uusimaa: Uusimaa and Uusimaa (disambiguation). This can be very confusing, since most of the people who type "Uusimaa" want to go straight to the article which is currently under the name Uusimaa (region). I suggest Uusimaa (region) is moved to its proper article, which is Uusimaa, and which will leave Uusimaa (disambiguation) as the sole disambiguation page. Besides, the straight equivalent of Uusimaa (region) in the Finnish Wikipedia is Uusimaa. [1] --Thorri 14:41, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

From the former Uusimaa talk page:

This used to be a disambiguation page but I moved the page to Uusimaa (disambiguation) and I'm going to write a whole new article about Uusimaa here. So therefore Uusimaa (region) is a totally useless and frankly, inadequate article. It is best for all of us to have the actual article about Uusimaa under the name Uusimaa, not "Uusimaa (region)".

I would appreciate if someone would delete the Uusimaa (region) article. --Thorri 16:39, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Help with doing the article is also very much appreciated since I don't have much time in my hands. --Thorri 9:54, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

There are now two disambig pages for Uusimaa - this one and Uusimaa (disambiguation). The order of this one seems upside down to me, historical meanings of the word should come last. / Habj 19:35, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
Maybe also Nyland should be redirected here. / Habj 19:44, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I was wondering that, too. It should be corrected a.s.a.p. (can you help?) --Thorri 10:05, 5 December 2005 (UTC)


What is the reason for naming all the other provinces with latin names in English Wikipedia (Ostrobothnia, Tavastia, etc.) but then Nylandia is called Uusimaa? --Migro (talk) 10:42, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Ostrobothnia and Tavastia are widely used in English. I've never seen "Nylandia" in English texts. --Jaakko Sivonen (talk) 16:43, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Helsinki and Espoo[edit]

I want to remind that Espoo is in no way an actual city on its own but belongs instead to the Helsinki Metropolitan Region. Yes, it is an independent municipality, and the second largest in Finland, but physically it is obviously a part of the metropolitan region. Thus, should the first paragraph instead mention that Uusimaa contains the capital region which is the largest metropolitan area in Finland? Explaining about Espoo and Helsinki that way might seem like they were two cities of Uusimaa, located apart from each other and not sharing common city structure, which is anything but reality. -- (talk) 20:56, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
