We have a confession: although we are an American dictionary publisher, and are deeply loyal to our first love, American English, we have a big, old crush on Scottish English—that is, the standard English used in Scotland. This list is why.
tawpie noun : a foolish or awkward young person
"Whisht! ye silly tawpie," said her father, "we have naething to do how they come by the bestial they sell—be that atween them and their consciences."
— Walter Scott, Old Mortality, 1816
Tawpie ends with same sound as many words used as terms of affection—cutie, sweetie, baby—but while this word can be employed in the same spirit as those, it can also be a bit mean. It's of 18th century vintage, and it's Scandinavian in origin.
