Word Origin and History for raggedy
adj.

1845, U.S. Southern, from ragged + -y (2). Raggedy Ann stories first published 1918, character created by U.S. illustrator Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938). The tangle of tales about the origin of the doll and the name probably are mostly invention, sorrow's grieving-shrine for Marcella Gruelle (1902-1915), best left alone.
