    Etimoloji

    [ 'hü-(")dü ] (noun.) 1875. Hausa, hu'du'ba/hu3'du3'ba1 (“to arouse resentment”). In English, meaning altered to “bring bad luck”, then applied to things thought to bring bad luck, including the thin spires of rock now called hoodoos. Previously incorrectly analyzed as alteration of voodoo, which is of different origin.
