Alternative forms[edit]


Possibly from Spanish coño (cunt; pussy) or Spanish de nuevo cuño ((of a person) who has recently entered a profession, union or social class.). The sense referring to “coming from a wealthy family” is said to have come from high-class people who curse “Coño!” during the 1950s. Compare English conyo. See also English valley girl, Spanish fresa.
