Meaning unknown. It could possibly be derived from Turkic ufak meaning "small", uba meaning "hill" (possibly a reference to a hill it sits atop of), up meaning "water" in Persian, or from the name of Bashkir tribe, upai. Ufa is a city in Russia and the capital of the Russian federal district of Bashkortostan. It was formerly named Tura-Tau, after the name of the hill it was situated on.
