From Middle French, from Old French puche (“purse, small bag”), from Frankish *pokka, *pukka (“pouch, bag”), from Proto-Germanic *puk-, *pūka- (“bag, pouch”), from Proto-Indo-European *buk-, *bu-, *beu- (“to blow, swell”). Reinforced by Old Norse puki, poki (“bag, pocket”), from Old Northern French. Cognate with Middle Dutch poke, Alemannic German Pfoch (“purse, bag”), Old English pocca, pohha (“poke, pouch, pocket, bag”), and English pocket; cf. also pouch.
