EtymologyEdit

From Old Turkic bek, from Proto-Turkic *bek (firm, solid, stable), possibly from Proto-Altaic *pĕ̀k`i ("big, solid, firm"). Cognate with Middle Mongolian jeke/jikä̆/ikä/ike, from Proto-Mongolic *hike ("big"), Evenki hegdi, from Proto-Tungus-Manchu *pegdi ("big, large, important") and Middle Korean phǝk, from Proto-Korean *pǝkh, *pak ("very, vigorously"). Cf. also *p`i̯àka 'mighty' (the two roots could interfere because of similarity).
