Silly Monkey Stories: Etymology for Toddlers Words

There are some words that Makenzie gets wrong, no matter how many times we correct her. I know in her head she is thinking, "I know I'm right. These silly grown-ups don't know what they're talking about."

One thing that has really stood out to me is that, instead of saying "hiccups", she says "Luke-ups". Now Luke is her twin brother. I need an etymologist to explain to me how the word "hiccups" evolved into "Luke-ups". Of course Makenzie refuses to listen to her father and I when we try to correct her.

Will this mystery ever be solved?
