  • According to OED, a variant of noddypoll, nincompoop.

    Etymology: Origin uncertain. Perhaps < NOD v. + -Y suffix6, or perhaps (in sense 1) shortened < NODDYPOLL n. Compare later NOD n.2
    In sense 2a perhaps with allusion to the nodding behaviour of the birds during courtship.

    See/compare poop-noddy.
