"Wallow" derives from Old English (wealwian, "to roll") and means "to plunge and remain in some state or condition." Other senses of the word are "act of rolling" and a "place where an animal wallows." This is combined with "mud," which is used in a similarly nasty term, Mudblood. Therefore, it also indicates a tainted or dirty person.
