Deuce

Deuce is used to refer to a playing card with a rank of two or a cast of dice totaling two, while in tennis it refers to a tied score between two players which can be broken by two consecutive points by a player in order to win. Deuce can also be used as a mild curse (ex: “what the deuce are they doing?”) or it can also be used to refer to a bad situation or person; the expression deuce is used to express something bad or unlucky, or even as another euphemism for the devil. The name comes from Old French deus meaning “two” via Latin duos (two) a nominative of duo (two); deus is also the Latin and French word for “god, deity”.

Deuce could also be given as a nickname to someone.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
