  1. Bouder comes from the Old French root *bod- (to swell), probably from the Proto-Germanic *būd-, *beud-, *buzda-, *bus- (to swell), from the Proto-Indo-European *beu-, *bu-, *bʰew- (to blow, swell, become, grow, appear), which is also the root of the English bud and Welsh bod (to be) [source].

    Not sure about the origins of pwdu.
