  1. Jan Sammer:

    Given the origin of the word in Minnesota with its large Swedish immigrant population and the original spelling with a single l, my hunch would be that its origin should be traced to the Swedish word “skuld” meaning debt (pl. “skulder”). Originally it probably referred to bilking others with false promises to pay.

    Fantastic. Learned a good bit from that and that from someone with a fascination for Scottish history
