Tl in the name means the former province of Turku and Pori (Finnish: Turun ja Porin lääni). It was attached to the name to distinguish Koski Tl from another municipality named Koski, Koski Hl (Hl for the former province of Häme, Finnish: Hämeen lääni). Koski Hl was renamed Hämeenkoski in 1995 but Koski Tl has not changed its name.

Koski Tl is unilingually Finnish.
