EtymologyEdit

From *fulkaz (crowd, army). May ultimately be from Proto-Indo-European *pl̥h₁-gós, from *pleh₁- (to fill). Compare Latin plebs (common people). Old Church Slavonic плъкъ (plŭkŭ, army division), Lithuanian pulkas (crowd) are both believed to be early borrowings from the Proto-Germanic word.
