Origen

mid 16th century: from Old French en gogues, from en 'in' + the plural of gogue 'fun'.

More
  • If you are agog you are now very eager to hear or see something, but originally you were having fun. The word comes from Old French en gogues, ‘in mirth, in a merry mood’. The French-coined 1960s phrase a gogo, meaning ‘galore’, comes from the same root.
