  • Does anybody know anything about this word?

  • Loogan (sometimes spelled loogin or lugan, according to the Historical Dictionary of American Slang) is no longer used to mean “a minor hoodlum,” though hood, recorded by Kendall, is still used to mean “a petty gangster.”

    I found LOOGAN in Jamieson’s Scottish Dictionary of 1825 with a definition of “a rogue” and in a couple of prison slang lists online meaning “mentally ill prisoner."
