Means "son of Kudash", from a given name of Mordvin or Turkic origin possibly meaning "woman's son" or "wife's son", referring to a boy born from one father and another mother (in relation to his half-siblings). Alternatively, it may be from Tatar and Bashkir куда (kuda) meaning "matchmaker, father" combined with the dimunutive suffix -sh, thus meaning "younger cousin" or "son of a godfather".
