G fòd + ? – in

‘Place of peats or divots’. G fòid or fòd (OG fót) ‘peat, sod, divot’, probably with the common locational suffix –in, later –ie. It presumably refers to an area one of whose chief resources was peat and/or divots. The root-word also occurs (without the suffix) in Fod DFL (PNF 1).

    OS Pathf. shows Foodie, Foodie Cottages (formerly Hammerhead, OS 6 inch 1856), Foodieash, Foodie Hill (a hill), Middlefoodie (q.v.). It also included Easter Foodie # and Wester Foodie # (early forms of which are included here), as well as Craigfoodie, for which see s.n., above.
