babbled = blabbed
Probably from the repetition of the syllable ba, which occurs in a child’s early speech. Earliest documented use: 1250. The word babel (as in the Tower of Babel) has nothing to do with babbling or blabbing.
“The babble of voices, clinking chips and glasses, and gruff mirth assaulted Tyree’s ears.”
Ralph Compton & David Robbins; The Evil Men Do; Signet; 2015.
