Its etymology is fuzzy, like that of much of words coming from the student's slang. Its written use the oldest date of 1882, in the book Therese Monique of Camille Lemonnier which wanted to already say “merry meeting, drinking bout”. Sources say that the term comes from the word Wallon godaille , coming itself from the Bas-francique goed ale , which would have been influenced by the term Picardo-Walloon guinse also meaning “drinking bout”. Other sources evoke the word guindal which was “glass with drinking” with half XIXe century. “To make guindal” resulted in “clinking glasses” in the student's middle of the time, and one would have added the suffix - goes giving a pejorative direction to the mot.
