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.
