Bandy about

Posted by Lotg on December 07, 2004

I browsed and found an explanation for 'bandy words'. Perhaps this is the same and has the same basis.

I'm querying the origin of the term 'bandy about', as in "don't bandy my name about", ie. just use my name loosely without any thought and spread it about.
