EtymologyEdit

Possibly from Latvian burkāns. Possibly a loan from dialectal Russian баркан(barkan), боркан(borkan), буркан(burkan), which itself might be a Latvian loan. Cognate to Finnish porkkana and Livonian borkõn, borkõnz, borkkiņ. The most likely scenario is that the word was loaned from Latvian into Estonian, Livonian, and Russian, and then spread to other Finnic languages through Russian.
