Related to German Low German nöken (to have intercourse; have sex). Ultimately from Proto-Germanic *hnukjaną (to bend; flex; clump together), with a special sense development in North Germanic, Old Dutch, and Old Saxon of "push, thrust, bump", from Proto-Indo-European *knewg- (to press; bend), from *ken- (to press; pinch). Cognate with Old Norse hnykkja (to snatch; pull violently), Danish nykke (to thrust; bump), Swedish dialectal nycka (to bump; push), Old English hnocc (penis), Old English ġehnycned (drawn up; pinched). More at nook.

The sense “to disrespect” is borrowed from English fuck.
