Short CUP words like Swedish and Norwegian kopp seem to have come from a longer word, as indicated by Dutch kopje and Finnish kuppi. That longer word’s ultimate etymon,   גביע GoBHeeYGHah, not only had an end-vowel chipped off, but the guttural G hardened to K (or hard C, as in English CUP and Danish kop.

Kub ek is a Polish mug; Kuf el is the Polish tankard or beer mug -- same guttural-bilabial cup term.  See CUP.

In Bulgarian the nasalized and guttural-Ayin gavanka is a bowl.  Similar is Chechen gevenk (bowl). Other guttural-bilabial vessels include the Italian gsvagno, Late Latin cavaneus, and the Mundzhani gwija,  Persian gawam and theTurkish kavanoz and gavana (in dialect form).
