Karttunen Analytical dictionary states:

1) icnöpilli         / îkno: - pil - tlî / (î epenthetic "i")
   fatherless child

2) icnöpilti        /îkno: - pil - ti /
    'to prosper in life, to be favored'

By what mysterious chance such a paradoxical
change of meaning had happened? Can someone
to see the connexion?
