The cities that have a long history with the Finns have their own name in Finnish language. London is Lontoo, Paris is Pariisi, Rome is Rooma. As for cities the Finns had very little or no relations in history to, or cities that are relatively 'new,' they have kept their own name and spelling in Finnish language. Like New York, Madrid, Budapest. People have their own names unless they are royalty or otherwise known characters such as Biblical names. Swedish Carl Gustaf is Kaarle Kustaa and Queen Mary is Maria. John is Johannes, Paul is Paavali. By the way, Germany is Saksa in Finnish because the Sacs region is the closest to Finland. Anyway, if a name is historically 'established,' it is likely to have its own translation and spelling in a language.
