See also: Kauko

FinnishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From the stem *kauka, from Proto-Finnic *kauka, likely borrowed from Proto-Germanic *hauhaz, from Proto-Indo-European *kewk-. Alternative theory suggests Proto-Finno-Ugric *kawka, ultimately from the same Indo-European root, but comparisons to possible cognates in other Uralic languages have been disputed. Cognate to Estonian kauge and Votic kaukaa.
