Etymology

edit

From a Vulgar Latin *puppāre, from puppa (breast, teat, nipple), from Latin pūpa; or perhaps formed from a hypothetical, now lost noun *pupă in early Romanian, from this Latin word. Compare Italian poppare (to suckle), poppa (boob, breast), Catalan and Occitan popar (to suckle), popa (boob, breast). Less likely from or linked to pup (bud). Cognate with puth (to kiss).

Etymology

Compare with Ifè kpikpa, probably from a reduplication of pa (to be red), which follows the general pattern of the other basic color roots, which involve a duplication of monosyllabic verbs. See dúdú (black), a reduplication of (to be dark) and funfun, a reduplication of fun (to be white). Proposed to be derived from Proto-Yoruboid *-kpa

Perhaps related to Fon kpákpá (a tree with red wood), proposed by Westerman to be derived from Proto-Volta-Congo *pia
