Otso is the namesake of the Ukko Bergman’s first son, Otso (pronunciation: /ots̺o/), respectful and trustworthy son.
In Finnish mythology Otso, is one of the many rarely uttered circumlocutory epithets for the spirit that was never directly named. Otso is another name for the bear, or the spirit of bears.
Generally, the spirit of the bear was referred to as friend, brother, uncle, or forestcousin. In a way, calling the bear by it’s proper name was seen as disrespectful.
