English Idiom “Goody Two-Shoes”: A prudish, self-righteous individual; a goody-goody…This expression alludes to the main character of a nursery tale, The History of Goody Two-Shoes (1765), who was so pleased when receiving a second shoe that she kept saying “Two Shoes.” The goody in the story is short for goodwife but means “goody-goody” in the idiom.
