Word History: Our words bellows and belly both come from an Old English word belg, meaning "bag" or "purse." The plural from belga was also used with the meaning "bellows." It was probably a shortening of the compound word blaestbelga, literally, "blow-bags." It is belga that ultimately gives us the modern word bellows.
