Fake is of unknown origin. It was first attested in criminal slang in London as an adjective in 1775, as a verb in 1812, as a noun in 1851 and as a person in 1888, though its origins are probably older. A likely source is feague from German fegen in colloquial use. Another source may be from Latin facere.

Fake is probably from feak, feague (to give a better appearance through artificial means); akin to Dutch veeg (a slap), vegen (to sweep, wipe); German fegen (to sweep, to polish). Compare Old English fācn, fācen (deceit, fraud). Perhaps related to Old Norse fjuka (fade, vanquish, disappear), feikn (strange, scary, unnatural) and Albanian fik (put out, vanquish, disappear).
