How did the kazoo get its name?

In the late 1800s when the word kazoo first appeared, there were several similar-sounding words for "fool" or "stupid person," including gazook, gazabo, gazebo, and gazoo. These might have influenced the development of the name of an instrument that makes a silly sound.
Don't know if its right, but it sounds good.
PS I once took one away from someone and stomped it flat. Sorta' sounded better after that.
