Mor är kortform av 'moder' och far är kortform av 'fader'.

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".

We have „táto“ in Ukrainian, which is quite similar

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?
