    The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudeln (lit. "snail noodles"), a kind of pastry. A different author suggests that the word "snicker" comes from the German word Schnecke, which describes a snail shape. Yet another hypothesis suggests that the name has no particular meaning or purpose  and is simply a whimsically named cookie that originated from a New England tradition of fanciful cookie names.
