Comes from the finnish word "suo" which means swamp, and directly translated "suokas" means "swampy". This surname originally came from Karelian Isthmus, Sakkola, that in nowadays belongs to Russia. In some point there was a village called Suokkaala. In english "Suokkaala" means kind of "people of Suokas family".
