- stoke:  Stoke is a back-formation from stoker , which was borrowed from Dutch stoker. This in turn was derived from the verb stoken ‘put fuel into a furnace’, a descendant of Middle Dutch stoken ‘push, poke’. And stoken came from a prehistoric Germanic base *stok-, a variant of *stik-, *stek- ‘pierce, prick’, from which English gets stick, stitch, etc. So the etymological meaning underlying stoke is of ‘thrusting’ fuel into a fire like a sharp instrument being pushed into something.

- stoke (v.)
- 1680s, "to feed and stir up a fire in a fireplace or furnace," back-formation from stoker (1650s); ultimately from Dutch stoken "to stoke," from Middle Dutch stoken "to poke, thrust," related to stoc "stick, stump," from Proto-Germanic *stok- "pierce, prick," from PIE *steug-, extended form of root *(s)teu- (1) "to push, stick, knock, beat" (see stick (v.)).
Meaning "to stir up, rouse" (feelings, etc.) is from 1837. Stoked "enthusiastic" recorded in surfer slang by 1963, but the extension of the word to persons is older, originally "to eat, to feed oneself up" (1882).
