This list includes nearly all persons found on the SDJ layout version 2 and in alphabetical order according to workplace or area.
Please note that the names are often attempts to word jokes in Swedish and is therefore virtually impossible to translate and still make the joke. They will keep their swedish names and general description but without the joke in English.
