Origin of luggage

  • Probably lug (bag)gage

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • 1590s, lug (“drag") +"Ž -age (“(noun)") - literally “that which is lugged, dragged around". Duplicate -g- is to clarify pronunciation of the vowel "˜u' (which is pronounced unchanged from lug). Compare baggage.
