Origin

  • Its early plural form noodlejees suggests a Dutch origin; from Dutch noedel ("noodle"), from German Nudel ("piece of pasta, noodle"), of uncertain origin. Perhaps from an alteration of German Kn√∂del ("dumpling"), from German Knoten ("knot") or from Latin minutulus ("very small, tiny") in the sense of "to chop (food) into small pieces" or Latin nodulus ("little knot"). The senses "fool" and "brain, head" are probably unrelated.
