Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English jugge, iugge, of uncertain origin. Possibly a variant of Middle English jubbe, jobbe, iubbe, geobbe, itself of unknown origin; or perhaps continuing (in altered form) Old English ċēac (pitcher; jug). Compare also jug (a low woman, maidservant), from Jug, familiar form of Joanna.
