Pricing for Publishing Name Days

The University of Helsinki maintains the name day calendars for both the Finnish- and Swedish-speaking populations in Finland. The university owns the copyright to the name day lists: no one may publish these lists without prior permission from the Almanac Office. Copyright to Name Days >>

The name lists have been updated for 2015. There are 873 names in the updated Finnish name day calendar, 455 of which are female names and 418 male names. There are 715 names in the updated name day calendar for the Swedish-speaking Finns, 375 of which are female names and 340 male names.

The pricing for publishing name days is determined according to the print run shown in the table below. If the print run falls between two amounts shown in the table, the price will be calculated accordingly to fit the number of units. The pricing for name days in bilingual calendars – that is, having both Finnish and Swedo-Finnish name days – is one-and-a-half times the price of a monolingual calendar.

Name day information is free to publish in newspapers and magazines and on the radio and television and online as long as there is no more than two weeks of name day information or no more than 15 names from the list in alphabetical order at a time. Media outlets and website administrators can purchase digital lists of name days from the Almanac Office which also may be used for a purpose which is not subject to copyright. Prices are €124 (one language) or €168 (two languages).

The royalties for name days in mobile application software are paid according to the number of units of sold apps. Since the selling prices of mobile apps are lower than the prices of paper calendars, the name day prices are equally as low. The name day prices are €0.053 (one language) or €0.08 (two languages) per app sold.

In Finland, a VAT rate of 24% is applied. These prices are for the calendaric information compiled for 2018.
