I can't, I just assume the words in these Korean lessons are Korean unless there is a reason to think otherwise. My comment only meant that the idea that 도마뱀 involves the Chinese word for "animal" very mispronounced seems far-fetched. Why "animal snake"? Not impossible, but needs serious evidence.
The original question remains a very interesting one. But the best I can find is "The first part may be related to 도막 (domak), 도막도막 (domakdomak)."
