- thigh: [OE] The thigh is etymologically the ‘plump’ part of the leg. Together with Dutch dij, it evolved from a prehistoric Germanic *theukham. This went back to Indo-European *teuk-, *tauk-, *tuk-, which also produced Lithuanian táukas ‘fat’. And these in turn were extensions of the base *tu- ‘swell’, source of English thousand, thumb, tumour, etc.
