From Middle English smiker, from Old English smicer, smicor ("beauteous, beautiful, elegant, fair, fine, neat, tasteful"), from Proto-Germanic *smikraz (“fine, elegant, delicate, tender”), from Proto-Indo-European *smēyg- (“small, delicate”), from Proto-Indo-European *smē-, *smey- (“to smear, stroke, wipe, rub”). Cognate with Middle High German smecker ("neat, elegant"), Ancient Greek σμικρός, μικρός (smikrós, mikrós, "small, short"), Lithuanian smeigti ("to lunge, thrust, jab"), Latin mīca ("crumb, morsel, bit").
