Etymology[edit]

A modern coinage, meant to be the opposite of sinonīms, with components derived from Ancient Greek ἀντί ‎(antí, against) and ὄνομα ‎(ónoma, name), with variants that arose in various European languages around 1850-1870. It was borrowed into Latvian and made into a masculine first-declension noun (ending -s), by analogy with sinonīms.
