Meaning & History

Russified form of an Ingush family name, which is derived the old Ingush personal name Ozda used by members of the Ozda teip (clan). The name itself is of disputed origin and meaning, though it is thought to be of non-Nakh, Perso-Arabic origin. One theory suggests Persian origin from the word آزاد (âzâd) meaning "independent, free" while another states that it is derived from the Turkish personal name Özdemir meaning "pure iron" (from öz meaning "self" or "pure" combined with demir meaning "iron").
