Sorry, no etymologies found.
I saw babooshkas literally running for their lives to get out of the way of the oncoming traffic.
Inside the snug (the pub Duke of New York) "there were these starry ptitsas or sharps or babooshkas you will remember from the beginning, and they all started on their: 'Evening, lads, God bless you, boys, best lads living, that's what you are,' waiting for us to say [as Alex and his droogs said in the first chapter], 'What's it going to be, girls?'"
But Alex decides to have a beer and go off on his oddy knocky while his droogs carry on with the violence for which they need the babooshkas to alibi them.
