Vásárfia is a little present brought from the market or fair. Literally the word means ‘son of the market/fair’. Back in the old times the father or some elder member of the family came home from the fair and gave a present bought there to some other member of the family saying ‘Hoztam neked vásárfiát,’, which means ‘I brought to you some present from the fair’.
