Lithuanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Cognate with Latvian magone (poppy), while Old Prussian moke is a Slavic loan. Ultimately borrowed from a Germanic language, Compare Old High German māho (poppyseed) > German Mohn (poppy); Estonian magun (poppy).

Also related are e.g. Russian мак (mak) < Proto-Slavic *makъ and Ancient Greek μήκων (mḗkōn). The root's Indo-European credentials are doubtful.
