History behind the term 'Bottom'


Bottom as a noun

In the late 1400s, the term 'bottom' started as a noun referring to the lowest part of something. It was often used to describe the lowest or deepest point of a physical object or place. For example, the bottom of a river or the bottom of a bottle.

Bottom as a figurative term

By the late 1500s, the term 'bottom' began to be used metaphorically. It started to refer to the underlying, essential part of something. This figurative usage expanded its meaning beyond just physical objects and places, encompassing the fundamental or core aspect of various concepts.


Bottom in theater

During the mid-1600s, the term 'bottom' gained significance in the world of theater. It became associated with the comedic character archetype known as the 'bottom,' who was usually depicted as a foolish and comic character. This character was often given the name 'Bottom' in plays, particularly in Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' The name 'Bottom' eventually became synonymous with a bumbling or clownish individual.

In the late 1800s, 'bottom' also began to be used as a euphemism for the buttocks. This slang term developed as a playful way to refer to this body part without using more explicit language. It entered popular culture and has since become a common slang term for the buttocks, often used humorously or informally.
