uzzi-tuzii

So, I'm re-reading Italo Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, which I last read during my first year of grad school. I remember my professor saying that the name Uzzi-Tuzii means something... but I can't remember what he said it means, and my google-fu is failing me. Does the name actually have a meaning? In what language?

Thanks in advance!

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
