If a woodchuck won’t chuck wood then why’s the woodchuck’s name imply that they would chuck said wood?

Side note, a woodchuck is a groundhog.  The ground part of that works, but the hog part would be either implying that they’re in the pig family or a motorcycle… Considering that they’re rodents, I’m going to just have to judge their names altogether.  Maybe they hog the grounds they live on?  That could work.
