Puddocky (sometimes Puddockie) is a section of the Water of Leith (the main river that flows through Edinburgh) at Canonmills.
Being an area noted for its frogs and toads, it is sometimes thought that the name comes from puddock, the Scots language word for frog.
However, it has also been suggested that the name is a corruption of Paddock Hall or Paddock Haw.
