Polka dots Hello! Has anyone got an idea why very small spots printed on a piece of cloth area called "polka dots." Dots make perfect sense here. Why "polka?" Thank you very much for your answers!

«It is likely that the term originated in popularity of polka dance at the time the pattern became fashionable, just as many other products and fashions of the era also adopted the "polka" name.» ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polka_dot ) ... I'm rather into psychedelic and bell-bottoms :D
