Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch crûke, from Old Dutch *krūka, from Proto-Germanic *krogu (pot, pitcher), of uncertain origin. Possibly from a Proto-Indo-European root shared with Old Armenian կարաս (karas, pitcher, large jar), Ancient Greek κρωσσός (krōssós, pitcher), Irish crog (earthen vessel), but the phonetics are problematic. Also compare Old Irish croiccenn (skin).[1][2].

Cognate with (regional) German Kruke.
