Etymology[edit]

Doesn't the name Oka come from PIE root *akwa? --85.156.228.187 (talk) 18:59, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Indeed it does, but some know-it-alls keep removing this. --Ghirla-трёп- 17:34, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Oka's name is Baltic origin, cf. Latvian aka 'well'. Roberts7 22:10, 6 August 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Roberts7 (talkcontribs)
