An from old Norse "hnøgger", which means "miserly", "stingy". Despite its similarity to the offensive term "nigger", the two words are not related in any way. Stop jumping to conclusions and open the dictionary.
English buff- "Boy that gentleman at the picnic sure was niggardly."

Ignoramus- "You said "picnic" and "niggerly"! Racist!"

English Buff- "*Sigh*! "Picnic" is from a French word that refers to what we'd call a pot luck, and "niggardly" is from an old Norse word that means "stingy". They have nothing to do with race!"

When trying to type "nigga" on a cell phone, the cell phone's spell-check will usually change it to niggardly, therefore you end up with a confusing text message.
1 Yo where you at nigga?
**Spell check changes word to niggardly**
*Before you can realize, you press send*

Second person receives text saying; "Yo where you at niggardly?"

Communication is hindered.
