Dutch[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch wac. Related to Middle Dutch wake, from Old Dutch *waka, from Proto-Germanic *wakwō, from which also Middle Low German wake (German Wake), Old Norse vǫk (Icelandic vök, Swedish vak). Probably not identical to this form, however, as both the gender and formation are different: wake and its cognates are feminine ō-stems, while wac is a neuter a-stem. It would therefore have to derive from *wakwan, but this form has no other known descendants.
