    Nothing of both. Somehow connected to Hungarians.

    Finns are neither Scandinavian nor Germanic. Finns are all mongols, that is why Finns are considered ugly (not all of them).

    Finno-Urgic actually ..

    Source(s): I've been to Finland and speak Finnish.

    Sami people are definitely a different type of Europeans, probably came from South China and mixed with another unrelated Europeans who are different from Scandinavians and Anglo-Saxons.

    Finland is not a Scandinavian country. Also Finns are Finno-Ugric and not Germanic.

    Strictly speaking, only Swedes and Norwegians (and the Sami among them) are scandinavian.

    Finnish is not a germanic language, although all Finns learn the language of the ethnicly Swedish minority of Finns to some extent.
