-116- Bodach

Standard

Noun. From Scottish Gaelic.

“The ghost of an old man who appears from chimneys to terrorise badly behaved children”

65 bodachs+

 

In modern speech, bodach can simply refer to an ‘old man’ and is used in a more affectionate term.

In fact, historically it meant ‘mature person.’

In fact, the word can be translated somewhat literally to mean ‘someone who has a penis.’

That escalated quickly.
