padda

Etymology[edit]

From Old Swedish padda, from Old Norse padda. Of uncertain origin, but possibly from Proto-Indo-European *bed- (to swell) (Pok. 96), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰeu- (to swell) (Pok. 98-102), which would indicate a Proto-Germanic *paddō-, *padda-, and English paddock would possibly indicate the presence of a diminutive *paddukaz. Cognate with Icelandic padda, Danish padde.

Compare English puddle, Old English puduc (swelling, lump, growth, wart), Low German puddig (swollen).

Noun[edit]

padda c

  1. a toad (an amphibian similar to a frog with bigger back legs and more ragged skin)
