Etymology[edit]

From Italian gnocchi, plural of gnocco (dumpling, literally lump), from nocchio (knot (in wood)), a borrowing from Lombardic knohha (knuckle, bone, knot), from Proto-Germanic *knukǭ (bone), *kneukaz (tuber, knuckle), from Proto-Indo-European *gnew- (knot, bundle). Cognate with Middle High German knoche (bone, knot) (modern German Knochen), Middle Dutch knoke (knuckle, knob, knot), Swedish knoge (knuckle). More at knuckle.
