The Yiddish word “dreydl” comes from the word “dreyen” meaning “to turn”. A dreidel is a four-sided top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: Nun), (Gimel), (Hei), (Shin), which together form the acronym for (Nes Gadol Haya Sham – “a great miracle happened there”). These letters also form a mnemonic for the rules of a gambling game played with a dreidel: Nun stands for the Yiddish word “nit” (‘nothing’), hei stands for “halb” (‘half’), gimel for “gants” (‘all’), and shin for “shteln” (‘put’).
