Etymology[edit]

From northern Middle High German becker, from Old High German beckeri, ultimately from Proto-Germanic *bakārijaz. Synchronically from backen +‎ -er.

Upper German originally used the words Beck and Pfister instead. The Central German form was reinforced by Middle Low German becker, from Old Saxon backeri. Both possibly from Proto-Germanic *bakārijaz (compare also Dutch bakker, English baker).
