I wonder where the English word "Dad/Daddy" comes from, as it seems to have no similarity to other European words to describe a father (as far as I know)?

One theory is that it came from the welsh word for "dad" which is "tad".

The normal speed audio seems to be very glitchy on this one - 'och' sounds like 'doh'

The speed of this one always gets me. Sounds like a single word.

Far+bror=farbror

But can you also say:

Mor+bror=marbror just to be more specific of the family tree?
