Etymology 1Edit

Etymology uncertain, but apparently related to Scots hod (to jog along on horseback), Scots houd, howd (to sway, rock from side to side, wriggle, bob up and down). Probably all from Old English hūdenian (to shake, sway, rock back and forth), from Proto-Germanic *hud- (to shake). Related to Scots hodder (to plod, stump or jog along), Low German hūdern (to shake, shudder). Compare also hoddle.
