Etymology[edit]

From Turkish kasap (butcher), from Arabic قَصَّاب(qaṣṣāb, butcher). Apparently came to wide use after massacre of Kazan in 1552. Compare Hebrew קצב(butcher), Crimean Tatar къасап (butcher), Ukrainian закаца́пити (zakacápyty, kill, slaughter), Bulgarian касап (kasap, butcher) and касапин (kasapin, butcher), Serbo-Croatian kasap (butcher) and kasapin (butcher) and Romanian casap (butcher).

Another etymology is from цап (cap, billy goat) with a prefix ка- (ka-). Likening a stereotypically bearded Russian man to a goat. An alleged folk etymology explains the word as “как-цап” (kak-cap, “like a billy goat”), deriving from Russian как (kak, as), however there is no factual evidence supporting this theory.
