“a magic spell”. Originally it was believed that witches possessed the power of glamour, Malleus Maleficarum, witches by their glamour could cause the male “member” to disappear

glamour (n.) at

1720, Scottish, "magic, enchantment" (especially in phrase to cast the glamor), a variant of Scottish gramarye "magic, enchantment, spell," alteration of English grammar (q.v.) with a medieval sense of "any sort of scholarship, especially occult learning," the latter sense attested from c.1500 in English but said to have been more common in Medieval Latin. Popularized by the writings of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). Sense of "magical beauty, alluring charm" first recorded 1840. Jamieson's 1825 supplement to his "Etymological Dictionary of the Scottish Language" has glamour-gift "the power of enchantment; metaph. applied to female fascination." Jamieson's original edition (1808) looks to Old Norse for the source of the word. Zoega's Old Icelandic dictionary has glám-sýni "illusion."

Origin of glamour

The word glamour (magic charm, alluring beauty or charm, a spell affecting the eye, a kind of haze in the air) comes from the Scottish term gramarye (magic, enchantment, spell), an alteration of the English word grammar (any sort of scholarship) from the latin grammatica, which is a transliteration of the Greek word grammatice (grammar; γραμματική).

Note: Others etymologize the Scottish gramarye from the Greek grammarion (gram; weight unit; γραμμάριο).

From the same root. glamorize, glamorous, grammar, grammatical, grammatic

In modern Greek (Romeika, the language of Romei/Romans/Ρωμηοί)

  1. gramma: letter [γράμμα]
  2. grammateas: secretary [γραμματέας]
  3. grammatia: secretariat [γραμματεία]
  4. grammatici: grammar [γραμματική]
  5. grammaticos: grammatical [γραμματικός]
  6. grammatio: note, bill, bond [γραμμάτιο]
  7. grammatocivotio: letter-box [γραμματοκιβώτιο]
  8. grammatosimo: stamp [γραμματόσημο]

Η λέξη glamour (γοητεία, θέλγητρο, σαγήνη, γόητρο, λάμψη) προέρχεται από το λατινικό grammatica, το οποίο αποτελεί μεταγραφή του ελληνικού γραμματική.
