Origin of oka
- From Italian oca, from French oque, from Turkish okka. The Turkish is sometimes said to be from Arabic ÙˆÙ‚ÙŠØ© (wuqÄ«ye), but some dispute this, since the latter denotes a much smaller weight. The Arabic probably came, via Classical Syriac, from Greek Î¿Ï…Î³ÎºÎ¹Î¬ (ougkiÃ¡), from Latin uncia (“ounce, twelfth part"), from unus (“one").
- From Russian ÐžÐºÐ° (Oka).
