  • It looks to be playful Latin. From the Oxford Dictionaries site:

    Difficult to deal with or settle; perplexing; (of a person) of dubious character.

    Late 17th cent. Origin uncertain; perhaps from classical Latin quisquis whoever, with subsequent alteration of the ending after adjectives in -ous. With the form quisquose perhaps compare -ose.
