origin

  • Regarding the "unsociable, smart person" definition:

    One folk etymology that was popular during the 1970s goes that "nerd" was originally spelled "knurd". "Knurd" was "drunk" (i.e. intoxicated by alcohol) spelled backwards. In other words: a person who was a "knurd" was the opposite of a "drunk".

    This and other proposed etymologies were collected and published in an article "Origins of the Word 'Nerd'" by John C. Dvorak, published in PC Magazine, Volume 6 Number 10.
