It’s used in the German incarnation of "The Simpsons" as a humorous neologism to translate the similarly humorous English embiggen. —Stephen 15:16, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
But is it used by anybody else? Cynewulf 16:13, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Google Search for vergrandet (3.500+ Hits) reveals the sentence: Tapferkeit und Edelmut vergrandet auch den kleinsten Wicht zum Helden.. 134.96.90.21 13:25, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Deleted as a readded failed RFV with no citations. Equinox 07:55, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
