Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly of pre-Roman origin, or derived from a Gothic 𐌼𐌰𐌲𐌰𐌽 (magan, be able), perhaps through a Vulgar Latin *exmagāre (deprive or take away power or strength). Other less likely theories proposed include a derivation from Latin magus (sorcerer, magician), with an original meaning of "to hex, bewitch". Compare also Portuguese and Galician esmagar (threaten), which are likely related, or linked to maga[1], and Old French esmaier, Old Provençal esmaiar.
