We saw sailing ships and line of dinghies (dinghy in Finnish is Jolla). That was the start of the name Jolla, we would be leaving to the sea on a optimistic dinghy. We tested how the word would sound in English, Chinese and in Europe, all that returned positive feedback. In Spanish pronunciation Jolla means precious stone. – Jussi Hurmola
