EtymologyEdit

Directly attested since 18th century as а́ккула (ákkula) and аку́л (akúl), while derivative акулий (akulij) is used to describe liver oil of a Greenland shark in a source going back to late 16th or early 17th century.

Immediate borrowing from rather different Old Norse hákarl (see internal etymology there) is rejected by Anikin, he rather proposes mediation by some Sami language.

Compare dialectal Norwegian haakall, Skolt Sami akkli, Kildin Sami а̄һклэӈӈк (āhkleŋŋk), Northern Sami áhkạlakkis (Greenland shark).
