They never get in pairs. So they lack evenness, and that IS odd.

If you are a very special odd number, they call you Prime. I like 163. The only even prime number is 2 and that, to me, makes 2 a very odd number indeed.

As you cannot make pairs, there is always one whatever left over that is part of neither half; the odd one out.

Odd has ancient origins meaning something that sticks out, much like we would say conspicuous
