I think the name's a Scottish thing. I first heard about it in a book about Robert Millar. Billy Connolly used to occasionally turn up at the same drum ups as Millar.
edit: I got the book out and have seen that I misremembered it. Connolly gets mentioned in a paragraph about drum ups but there's nothing them meeting. And I guess he must be a fair bit older than millar anyway.
