Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Derived with the diminutive -kka suffix from a root that originates from some other European language, most likely Old Swedish kirsebär. Compare German Kirsch, Swedish körsbär, Estonian kirss, Russian чере́шня (čeréšnja). Ultimately from Vulgar Latin ceresia, from the neuter plural of Late Latin ceresium, from Latin cerasium, from Ancient Greek κεράσιον (kerásion, cherry), from Ancient Greek κερασός (kerasós, bird cherry), ultimately possibly of Anatolian origin.
