EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Baltic *kuok-, from Proto-Indo-European *kewk-, from the stem *kew- (to bend, to be bent).

Meaning at first “bent wood, branch, stick,” it soon became “wood, tree.” It competed with mežs (< *medis), the original term for “wood, tree,” which soon acquired the meaning of “forest.” The original “branch, stick” meaning of koks can still be occasionally found (see below).

Cognates include Lithuanian kúoka (stick with thick end, pounder, pestle), kúokas (stick with thick end; thick end of a stick; tuber; mace, club), kukà (stick), Bulgarian кука (kuka, spike, peg, wedge, hook, handle).[1]
