Anu, hi!

A check in a private database of Finnish Jews does not give any kind of hit for the names you listed. Non-Jewish families in the Nordic countries often gave Biblical names to their children, and even today names as Adam, Eva, David, Salomon, Sara and Jakob are not uncommon among non-Jews. This applies not less to family names. For example, although I am Jewish, born in Sweden and carry the name Jacobson, I had two classmates with the identical family name, none of them Jewish. If that was your indication of anything Jewish in your family roots, I think the idea can be negated.

Good luck,
