I think maybe you mean ditto?

Where exactly did "ditto" originate from?
It's a pokemon! (which isn't the first, but the only one that counts).
Ditto, which at first glance seems a handy and insignificant sort of word, actually has a Roman past, for it comes from dictus, "having been said," the past participle of the verb dcere, "to say." In Italian dcere became dire and dictus became detto, or in the Tuscan dialect ditto. Italian detto or ditto meant what said does in English, as in the locution "the said story." Thus the word could be used in certain constructions to mean "the same as what has been said"; for example, having given the date December 22, one could use 26 detto or ditto for 26 December. The first recorded use of ditto in English occurs in such a construction in 1625. The sense "copy" is an English development, first recorded in 1818. Ditto has even become a trademark for a duplicating machine.

Yes I do, but google wasn't helpful on that one... Searched Diddo, hundreds of articles under that spelling... Obviously a common mis-conception.
Sorry, I was just j/k'g...but I should have said as such...

I got requested as well. I was skeptical at first, but it's legit. We get a free copy though.

You should have seen my eyes lite up when I read that bit!
I know, right. I'm so excited I don't have to pay for one.
