“fame, renown,” 1799, probably originally in university slang, from Greek kydos “glory, fame,” especially in battle, literally “that which is heard of” (see caveat). A singular noun in Greek, but the final -s often is mistaken as a plural suffix in English, leading to the barbarous back-formation kudo (attested by 1936).
