Etymology[edit]

From Middle French, from Old French bouder (to sulk", literally, "to swell or protrude the lip), from a root *bod- (to swell) (compare Walloon boder (to swell)), probably from Proto-Germanic *būd-, *beud-, *buzda-, *bus- (to swell), from Proto-Indo-European *beu-, *bu-, *bʰew- (to blow, swell). Cognate with Middle Low German buddich (swollen), Old Norse budda (purse, bag), Old Saxon būdil (bag, purse), Old High German būtil (purse) (German Beutel), English bud. More at bud, bug.
