Vaska pi, in Hungarian we have several names ending in "fi" which means, "the son of". Dezsőfi = Son of Dezső. I know our words starting with F originally started with P... so, in the past we might have names like in Udmurt ending to "pi" also.This is the typical traditional way in Udmurt to create names: the first proper noun is the name either of 1) father or 2) mother, 3) or clan, 4) or village etc. and the following proper noun is the given name. For example, Kolya Valya means ‘Kolya’s daughter Valya’, Kuchyran Yuri means ‘Yuri from Owl clan’, Karsa Ivan ‘Ivan from the village Karsa’. Very often instead of following proper name just kinship term is used: Vaska pi ‘Vaska’s son’, Karsa pi ‘the boy from Karsa village’.
