Etymology[edit]

From Old French fantosme, from Latin phantasma, from Ancient Greek φάντασμα (phántasma); alternatively, according to the TLFi, it may have arrived in French through late Gallic Vulgar Latin in what is now southern France/Occitania, from an Ionian Greek dialect brought to Marseilles, presumably in a form *phantagma > *phantauma. The later spelling in Old French thus reflects the influence of the spelling of phantasma, the standard Latin form.
