What are the villages in or near Malax?

Classification: Query
I have noticed as I am researching my family in Malax, Finland the they are from many different villages, and sometimes their last name corresponds with those villages and can change if they move to a different village. Places like Övermalax, Vias or Wias, Mattlars. I am finding most of my info in the HisKi database, but when they list the villages many times they are abbreviated. I'm just trying to learn the place hierarchy. So when I label where they are from would it me Övermalax, Malax, Vasa, Oostrobothnia, Finland? Does anyone know how these work?
