From Algerian Arabic نيك (nīk), imperfect stem of ناك(nāk), from Arabic ناكَ(nāka). This is the accepted etymology; a theoretically possible derivation from unrelated Dutch neuken is unlikely both on phonetic grounds and because the vulgar use of this word was originally restricted to the more northern dialects of Dutch.
