Origin of dank
- Middle English probably of Scandinavian origin
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Middle English danke, first recorded circa 1310 (as verb; circa 1410 as noun), probably from North Germanic, related to Swedish dank (“marshy spot”) and dänka (“to moisten”); though some trace it to a West Germanic source such as Dutch damp (“vapor”) or Middle High German damph.
