Etymology 1

From chub (short, thick fish species used as bait"; used metaphorically since 1558 for "lazy person), from Middle English chubbe (chub (the river fish)), recorded since c.1450, probably an assibilated form of cub (a lump, heap, mass) and cob, from Middle English *cubbe (found only in derivative cubbel (a block to which an animal is tethered)), from Old Norse kubbr, kumbr (block, stump, log) and/or Old Norse kumben (stumpy), equivalent to chub +‎ -y. Cognate with Icelandic kubbur (block, cube), Norwegian kubb, kubbe (block, stump, log), Swedish kubb (block, log), and perhaps to Icelandic kubba (to hew, chop, lop) and Russian "кубышка". More at cob, kibble.
