- pucker:  The etymological notion underlying pucker seems to be of forming into ‘pockets’ or small baglike wrinkles (the same idea led to the use of the verb purse for ‘wrinkle, pucker’ – now dated in general usage, but fossilized in the expression purse the lips). The word was based on the stem pock- of pocket.
- pucker (v.)
- 1590s, "prob. earlier in colloquial use" [OED], possibly a frequentative form of pock, dialectal variant of poke "bag, sack" (see poke (n.1)), which would give it the same notion as in purse (v.). "Verbs of this type often shorten or obscure the original vowel; compare clutter, flutter, putter, etc." [Barnhart]. Related: Puckered; puckering.
