What does Tootles mean?

Tootles means Goodbye

‘Tootles’ is another way of spelling ‘toodles’, and both are used when you want to say “goodbye”. They originally come from the French saying “√† tout √† l‚Äôheure,” which translates to “see you soon.”

The British adopted and shortened “tout √† l‚Äôheure” into “toodle-oo” and “toodles” way back in the early 20th century. This change is believed to have been brought about by British soldiers returning from World War I who mispronounced “tout √† l‚Äôheure.”

So, if you hear someone saying ‘Tootles’, they’re not speaking gibberish. They’re just using a fun, slang way of saying goodbye that has its roots in a French phrase.
