    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Finnish Eino, Tauno, Arvo, Toini, Aarne, Armas, Ensio, Mikko, Reijo, Reino, Toivo, Eero.

    Finnish: ornamental name from koski ‘waterfall’, ‘rapids’. This was one of the many words denoting natural features that were used in the formation of Finnish surnames during the name conversion movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the US, this is sometimes a shortened form of other Finnish surnames formed with this element, e.g. Kalliokoski, Ylikoski.

    Polish: habitational name from any of several places called Koski, named with kos ‘blackbird’. In the US, this may also be a shortened (and shortened) form of some longer surname of Polish origin ending in -ko(w)ski or beginning with Ko- and ending in -ski.
