From Middle English manken, from Old English mancian, bemancian ("to maim, mutilate"), of obscure origin. Cognate with Dutch and Middle Low German mank ("lame, defective"), Middle High German manc ("lack, defect"). Perhaps from Latin mancus ("maimed, crippled, frail, incomplete"), from Proto-Indo-European *mank-, *menk- (“maimed, mutilation, torment”). (Wiktionary)
Via Polari, from Italian mancare ("to be lacking"), from Latin mancus ("maimed"). See above. (Wiktionary)
(portmanteau) man + milk. Sometimes stylized as "MANK". (Wiktionary)
