From Middle English tode, toode, tade, tadde, from Old English *tāde, a shortening of tādie, tādiġe (toad), of unknown origin, possibly Proto-Germanic. Cognate with Scots tade, taid, taed, ted (toad). Compare also Danish tudse (toad), ultimately from the same root; also Swedish tåssa, tossa (toad), Old English tāxe (toad), Old English tosca (toad) by contrast.
