The origin of the Ivorian name ‘Yaya’ you can see here

How do you know they don't both come from an early Indo-European root? Those Indo-European nomads really got around, you know. Even Tibetan has quite a bit of vocabulary of Indo-Euro origin. Who are the Bashkirs? Nobody, in the grand scheme of things. A mere blip on the map, and the historical record.

Now you've really crossed over to the absurd, Radik. "-us" is a suffix in Latin indicating singular masculine nominative case/number/gender. There is no "-sus" root in that word. You need to study real Indo-European linguistics, not just pick someone else's erroneous ideas out of a book, or post your own fantasy etymologies. Study some Latin, and some Tocharian. Then get back to us.

I think you're confusing baby from where it comes from.

Finnish word "imeä" /to suck/ comes from Bashkir word "имә" (imæ) /he sucks/.
The pronunciation of both words is the same.
