gopher


gopher
gopher 1812, Amer.Eng., perhaps an Anglicization of Louisiana Fr. gaufre "honeycomb, waffle," said to have been used by French settlers in reference to small mammals on analogy of the structure of their burrows, from O.Fr. gaufre, of Frankish origin. The rodent was the nickname of people from Arkansas (1845) and later Minnesota (1872). The gopherwood tree of the Bible (used by Noah to make the ark, Gen. vi:14) is unrelated; it is from Heb. gofer, perhaps meaning the cypress.
