I cannot find the etymology of the word “twizzlebutt”, you said that this website has the etymology of everything. Why must you lie to me?

Currently this site is a one man job, so for now we’re focussing on the etymology of everyday things, which is a longer and slightly less catchy title. By everyday things, we mean companies, brands, and names that you see in everyday life that you might not have given a second thought to.

Maybe we’ll get around to the etymology of English, French, Chinese, and Spanish words, but for now there are excellent websites that cover the etymology of words.

Why haven’t covered Banco Laundrette or Sugarpuff Bakeries?

We’ll get to it eventually. If there’s something you’d like us to cover, leave a comment below, and we’ll put it at the top of the pile.

Are these real questions that people have asked?

Er, no. Sorry, you’ve caught me in another white lie. This is a new site, so I just made up a bunch of questions that I thought people might ask.

If you’ve got a question for us, just leave it in the comments section below.
