- puddle:  Old English pudd, a word of unknown origin but related to German dialect pfudel ‘puddle’, denoted ‘ditch, furrow’, and puddle was a diminutive formed from it. In Middle English, it was often used for quite large bodies of water, what we would now call a pond or pool, but by the 17th century it had largely narrowed down to its present-day meaning.
- puddle (n.)
- early 14c., "small pool of dirty water," frequentative or diminutive of Old English pudd "ditch," related to German pudeln "to splash in water" (compare poodle). Originally used of pools and ponds as well.
- puddle (v.)
- "to dabble in water, poke in mud," mid-15c., from puddle (n.); extended sense in iron manufacture is "turn and stir (molten iron) in a furnace." Related: Puddled; puddling.
