In fact, the popular word to describe something in a bragging manner has its first written use in the 1596 play A Midsummer Night’s Dream! The quote of the original usage is as follows from character, Puck: “What hempen homespuns have we swaggering here?” There are even earlier occurrences that may have to do with the word dating back farther before Shakespeare to the 1300s!
