Origin of pudding

  • Middle English a kind of sausage from Old French boudin

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

  • An alternative etymology assumes origin from Proto-Germanic *put-, *pud- (“to swell") (compare dialectal English pod (“belly"), Old English puduc (“wen, sore"), Low German puddig (“swollen"), Westphalian Puddek (“lump, pudding"), Puddewurst (“black pudding"). More at pout.
