Why are they called hush puppies?

Hush puppies are small baked or fried balls of cornmeal; they are popular in the south. The story goes that they were often fed to dogs while hunting to keep them quiet, to 'hush the puppies'. Hush Puppies is also a registered brand name of popular footwear, and I'm going to make a wild guess that they got the name because they are a softer shoe with a soft and quiet sole.
