Something like 80-90 % of the mountains are situated in Norway. The name Skanderne (The Scandes) is practically unknown in Norway. There is only 2 (two) Google references in Norway to Skanderne. You have to be a Geologist to have heared the name.
Skanderne/Skandarne/The Scandes is (from what I gathered) a name used in Sweden for the mountains.
Kjølen is in Norway popularily used as a name for the (lowish) mountains along the border between Norway and Sweden - not the main mountain areas inside Norway or the mountains inside Sweden.
Scandinavian Mountains is probably the only correct name for the mountains in Scandinavia.
