putra पुत्र

Definition: Is, with Sūnu, the usual name for ‘ son ’ from the Rigveda onwards. The original sense of the word was apparently ‘ small,’ or something analogous. The form Putraka is often used with the distinct intention of an affec­tionate address to a younger man, not merely a son proper. Reference is frequently made to the desire for a son. Cf. Pati.
