In all Germanic lan­guages except English the Baltic Sea is called "East Sea" - this includes German (Ost­see), Dutch (Oost­zee) and all Scan­di­na­vian lan­guages. The name has been used since the Viking age, and was also adpoted (through Swedish) into Finnish lan­guage, dis­re­gard­ing the ge­og­ra­phy (the sea is west of Fin­land).
