Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Slavic *čuka, *čukъ. Compare Lithuanian čiùkaras (sharp rock), dialectal Bulgarian чука́ра (čukára) and dialectal Serbian чу̀кара (sharp rock). According to some others, the word is borrowed from pre-Slavic substratum due to the fact that it's absent in western Slavdom, the substratum language being possibly Albanian.
