Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *p`ḗt[e]
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: name, to call
Russian meaning: имя, называть
Turkic: *āt
Tungus-Manchu: *pete-
Korean: *pɨ̀rɨ̀- / *pɨ́rɨ́-
Japanese: *pǝta-ja-
Comments: The parallel seems interesting (with a semantic development 'call' < > 'name' > 'omen', 'fate'), but back *ā in Turkic is not quite clear (one should rather expect *ēt); perhaps we should reconstruct dialectal variants *p`ḗte / *p`ḗta. See also notes to *pōto.
