Eric Knowles Comments : Otherwise known as a water bottle, the name 'guglet' is derived from the same stem as 'gargoyle' and 'gurgle', which both - in turn - have common ancestry meaning both 'throat' and the noise of water being poured from, flowing through or being 'gargled' in an appropriate vessel or conduit !
