Meaning & History

Derived from Russian дудка (dudka), which denotes a wind-blown instrument similar to a flute or pipe. It was probably used to denote a musician or shepherd who played the flute or pipe, as well as someone who made pipes. The name of the instrument itself is ultimately derived from Russian дуда (duda) "fife, pipe".
