5 most common local surnames

Because my surname is Olson and I have studied in Scandinavia about Scandinavia, I feel a need to classify for readers that Finland is generally not included as part of Scandinavia. Yes, it exists geographically on what is known as the Scandinavian Peninsula, but culturally and historically Scandinavia is composed of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Study Finnish language and cultural origins and you will understand that while of course there are similarities due to proximity, it is quite different from Scandinavia proper.
