There are quite a few offensive terms for the Finns, some of which have a pejorative association. The Russians used to frequently refer to Finns (and Estonians) as Chukhna (the actual name of these nations in Imperial Russia, now considered derogatory). The Estonians use poro (Estonian: Pőder, literally "reindeer") presumably to both play on geographical location, and the fact that Finns purportedly navigate the streets of Tallinn on all fours after having drunk themselves legless.
The Swedish refer to Finns as Finnjävel (literally "Finnish devil"). Both the Swedes and Norwegians can use the name Pekka, signifying the fact that they feel the first name is typical for Finns. Pekka is used as a derogatory nickname also by Estonians, usually referring to a drunken/bad-mannered Finnish day-tripping tourist. A jocular and not so offensive nickname for Finns in most contexts is the Swedish Mumintroll (pl & sl) referring to the famous Finnish children's story and comic Moomin. An older swedish term is "Finnpajsare" which is/was considered very derogatory.
