Where did the food hush puppies originally get it's name from?


I always heard that it came about a long time ago when there were outside kitchens. While cooking the meals the cooks made these little tasty pieces of bread and tossed them to the dogs and puppies all around them to quiet them down, and of coarse they would say "hush puppy". Does anyone out there on the hub pages know if this is true or not?
