You got me to look up a definition and indeed, I found this: The words niggard and niggardly are sometimes misinterpreted as racial slurs because they sound like the highly offensive word ******. However, niggard dates back to Middle English. The first element nygg-, nig- was borrowed from a Scandinavian source, and -ard is a pejorative suffix. The English word niggardly is a modern English formation from niggard. Therefore these two words are not etymologically related to ******.
    the offensive word is a derivative of a yiddish word that simply means Black.

    It was the name for a gnome like creature from folklore... interesting how it carried over in to Northern European languages.

    I have a Pennsylvania Dutch cook book from My grandma. That has drawings in it. With the Gnomes and their names.

    Was originally a name used by Europeans as they came across more people from the Southern Hemisphere. Broadly describing darker complected people. Then was corrupted into a vulgar term.
