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 *bʰew- ‎(to swell) (Pok. 98-102), which would indicate a Proto-Germanic *paddǭ, 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).
