From Old Norse mjolk, mjǫlk, from Proto-Germanic *meluks, cognate with mjølk, Swedish mjölk, English milk, German Milch, Dutch melk, and possibly Proto-Slavic *melko. The Germanic word ultimately derives from Proto-Indo-European *h₂melǵ- (“to milk”), which is also the source of the verbs Latin mulgeō, Ancient Greek ἀμέλγω (amélgō), and Danish malke.
