Origin of fuckMiddle English (attested in pseudo-Latin fuccant, (they) fuck, deciphered from gxddbov), probably akin to Dutch fokken, to strike, have sexual intercourse with, breed (cattle), German ficken, to have sexual intercourse with, and Swedish dialectal fock, penis; see peuk- in Indo-European roots. Word History: Fuck is an old word, although throughout its history it has probably been uttered in speech much more than it has been written in manuscripts or printed in books. The first evidence we have of the existence of the word fuck is found in a poem composed in a mixture of Latin and English sometime before 1500. In the manuscript of the poem, some of the lines are even written in code—to hide the lewd nature of the text or perhaps to offer the reader the fun of deciphering the verses and discovering the bawdy words within. The poem, which satirizes the Carmelite friars of Cambridge, England, takes its title, “Flen flyys,” from the first words of its opening line, “Flen, flyys, and freris,” that is, “fleas, flies, and friars.” The line that contains fuck reads “Non sunt in coeli, quia gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk.” The Latin words “Non sunt in coeli, quia,” mean “they [the friars] are not in heaven, since.” The code “gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk” is easily broken by simply substituting the preceding letter in the alphabet, keeping in mind differences in the alphabet and in spelling between then and now: i was then used for both i and j; v was used for both u and v; and vv was used for w. This yields “fvccant [a fake Latin form] vvivys of heli.” The whole thus reads in translation: “They are not in heaven because they fuck wives of Ely [a town near Cambridge].”

undetermined, but probably from Middle English *fucken, *fukken, of North Germanic origin, related to dialectal Norwegian fukka (“to copulate; fuck”), Swedish fokka (earlier "to fuck; thrust; push", nowadays focka (“to fire from work”)), Swedish fock (“penis”), and Middle Dutch (Modern Dutch) fokken (“to breed”). It may go back to the Proto-Indo-European *pug-, *puǵ- ("to strike"; source of Latin pūgnus (“fist”) among many others), or to Proto-Indo-European *puḱn-, *pewḱ- ("to sting, stick, stab"; compare German ficken (“to fuck”)). The word may be attested in a 772 charter which mentions a place called Fuccerham, which possibly means “ham of the fucker” or “hamm (“pasture”) of the fucker”. The first verifiable use of the word in English writing appears in Flen flyys and freris, a medieval poem (1495–1505) containing the pseudo-Latin form fvccant; it was first listed in a dictionary in 1598.
The Scots cognate, fuck, fuk, appears in 16th century sources, the earliest being the 1503 poem “Brash of Wowing” by William Dunbar, which includes the lines: “Yit be his feirris he wald haif fukkit: / Ye brek my hairt, my bony ane.”
A range of folk-etymological acronyms have been advanced, such as "fornication under consent of the king" and "for unlawful carnal knowledge", all demonstrably bogus.
