Sorry, no etymologies found.
The people said in the village, that doth no one other than the honest dwarflings -- they come tripping along by night, in long mantles, with covered feet, softly as birds, and perform diligently for men the work of the day.
"It was the wont of the dwarflings to seat themselves upon a great crag stone, and from thence to watch the haymakers; but a few mischievous fellows kindled a fire upon the stone, made it red-hot, and swept away embers and ashes.
