Origin of starkers

  • Alteration of stark naked

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • British slang, from 1923, combining (like a popular etymology) two meanings of stark (“strong, utterly; barren") with stark naked, which is from Old English steort (“tail"), referring to the tail-end (as in butt-naked).
