Etymology

posted by .

So I posted like 3-4 weeks ago that I was doing a project about fascinating etymology stories and I got a few great websites:)

I only could find a few really funny and interesting stories that my classmates would actually enjoy/ want to listen to. I have been to fun-with-words and have also searched interesting/funnny/amusing etymology stories on the web and looked in books. Does anyone know of any other good websites or words that would have an interesting etymology story?

Thanks:)
