v.

1530s, from Middle English gogelen “to roll (the eyes) about” (late 14c.), influenced by Middle English gogel-eyed “squint-eyed, one-eyed” (late 14c.), of uncertain origin, perhaps somehow imitative. As a surname (Robert le Gogel) attested from c.1300. Related: Goggled; goggling. As a noun, 1650s, “goggling look;” earlier “person who goggles” (1610s).
