What is your source for Karelian? I'm curious about this one because Proto-Finnic *okte isn't a very widespread root and the addition of the "s" to it even less so. It's basically found only in regional and euphemistic Estonian ott (karu in standard Estonian, but ott is well-known due to a popular resort town being called Otepää "bear's head" and Ott is also a personal name), Livonian okš, Finnish ohto and otso (poetic/dialect forms; more standard is karhu), Erzya овто and Moksha офта. And as far as I've found, that's it! In most dialects I thought the Karelian word for bear was derived from *kontija (as a variation of kontie, kondie, kondii depending on the dialect), as it is in Veps and Ludic, although I did once find a North Karelian dialect form ottšo. So I am intrigued to find otso for Karelian here and curious about your source, or if you know which dialect.

The Kalevala. I understand most of the source material was collected in Karelia so I mistakenly thought otso was a Karelian word.

Ah. No, Kalevala is written in Finnish. Actually, I believe it was first translated into Karelian (from Finnish) only within the last decade or so.
(Edit: yep, translated into Karelian in 2009)
