 The Straight Dope Mailbag: What's the origin of the piggy bank?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
At the time the barbaric Saxons learned to write, "pygg" was probably pronounced to rhyme with "pug," but as the pronunciation of "y" changed, "pygg" came to be pronounced about like "pig," and the banks were shaped like pigs as a joke, or because of confusion of the meaning.
and by the 18th Century, pygg jar had become pig bank, potters simply casting the bank in the shape of its common, everyday name.
Bank originally meant "bench"; you can probably see the connection between the words.
