meaning of boobs

boobs meaning in Etymology Dictionary

"breasts," 1929, U.S. slang, probably from a great deal older term boobies (late 17c.), about 17c. bubby; possibly fundamentally from Latin puppa, literally "little girl," ergo, in child-talk, "breast." Or else it is a normal development in English (compare French poupe "teat," German dialectal Bubbi, etc.).
