, it's a derivative meaning, based on the notion that some folks, naming no names, are so taken with the noises generated within their skulls that they lose perspective; they became known as "dunderheads", and by extension over time the word came to mean "fumbling or stupid". That's my story, and I am sticking to it.
As for my contributions to the history of Norse mythology, you are much too kind.
