  • originally pronounced as in valley in place of origin Glasgow, before being distorted by Londoners especially who believed the Scots were actually saying the male name 'Wally', it relates to a tenement stairway, a 'close', that was tiled 'a wally close' pronounced as in valley, and where the more well-off families lived, and who kept their children from playing with the 'roughs' with the consequence that lack of 'playing out' led to less well co-ordinated (less socially skilled as well, therefore) people, 'wallies' (as in valleys).
