Ever heard the phrase, "Whoa, Nellie"? Nell, or Nellie, was an late 19th to early 20th century nickname for a female horse. It was particularly applied to one hitched to a wagon or buggy, probably because those mares were either the only one owned by the household or were the horse most tamed for the harness. Remember, this was the world before and on the cusp of the automobile. A horse was very important for transportation. Being close to the family, much like a pet, the horse would tend to be called by a name; a common name for a mare was Nell, or at least it was common enough that if you referred to a mare, you might use the term Nell. Horses can be jumpy or anxious in novel or quickly changing situations, a characteristic of the crowding of small towns and cities during this era. The horse could always be surprised or frightened by something around the next corner, or the ever changing activity around them. Hence the term Nervous Nellie came to be applied to a horse when it became jumpy in these situations.
back in the carthorse days...nellie was common name for horses so maybe that is where the term came from since horses are high strung and nervous
In the early 20th century, Nellie was a nickname for a female horse. A skittish horse was known as a nervous one, hence, nervous Nellie.
because a horse is sometimes called a nellie and horses tend to act nervous around humans
The name Nellie can come from Ellen, Helen or eilean if a girl or Cornelius if a boy.
Dame Nellie Melba :)
Nellie Bly didn't formally go to college, but she did attend the Indiana Normal School for one term before she was pulled out due to money.
Of course she does. Every American Girl doll or Best Friend doll comes with the book they are either first introduced in (primary AG dolls) or are centered mainly around them (Best Friend AG dolls). For example:Nellie would come with Nellie's PromiseElizabeth would come with Very Funny ElizabethEmily would come with Brave EmilyRuthie would come with Really, Truly, RuthieAnd Ivy would come with Good Luck Ivy Hope this helps :)
Nellie Olesen was played by Alison Arngrim. I don't know what you mean by the original. Nellie was never replaced in the series. After she married Percival Dalton, they had twins they moved to New York to take over Percival's fathers company after he became sick. After the move, Nellie and Percival didn't come back into the series until the 9th season. Nellie's parents adopted a child named Nancy who acted just like Nellie.
it can be changed by letting your nervous system come down by telling someone what your nervous or by stop being nervous.
Chorea, dystonia, myoclonus are various nervous tics.
No idea. Come on I have to a research project on her please, I need a answer.
peripheral nervous system (PNS)
A neurosurgeon operates on the nervous system.
adipose, hyaline, and osseous are all connective tissue. nervous is a tissue on its own and NOT a connective tissue which is why the one that DOES NOT belong is NERVOUS!!
One system creates an emotional response, and the other dampens it. The sympathetic nervous system creates a short-term mobilizing response, and the parasympathetic nervous system dampens it in the long term.
i believe nervous because it's not as deep in the skin as the others
The medical term for the brain and spinal cord together is the central nervous system. The other nerves make up the peripheral nervous system.
