Etymology[edit]

Rendition of the Russian toponym Пермь (Permʹ), probably from a Finno-Permic (Uralic) stem, compared to Estonian põrand, dialectal põrmand (floor, ground) by P. Alvre in Keel ja Kirjandus No 7, 1981, pp. 407-413. Compare Bjarmaland.

Appears on western maps as latinized Permia in the late 16th century (Mercator (1595)). The Russian city of Perm is a modern foundation, established under Peter I in 1723.
