Muslim: from Persian pur(i) ‘son of’, used like Arabic ibn or bin. For example, Mahmud of Ghaznah (971–1030), the founder of the Ghaznavid dynasty in Afghanistan and Khorasan, was known as Mahmud puri Sabuktagin ‘Mahmud son of Sabuktagin’. Perhaps also an altered spelling of German Pauer, a Bavarian and Austrian variant of Bauer.
