 Where does the word “ghost” come from?


 


We talk about ghosts all of the time but we never talked about where the word came from. The word ghost is an English word, but, it has traveled from at least a couple of other cultures prior too. It is thought that the word originated from an Old Norse word, “geisa” which meant, “To Rage”. Old Norse was a language spoken in Scandinavia during the Viking era up until around the year 1300. From there the term changed to ghoisdo-s which denoted, “fury, anger”.



From there it found its way into the Germanic culture which became “gaistaz”. It was from this word that the Old English word, “gast” came from, and, from this word the English word, “ghost” came to be.



It just goes to show you that there has always been an interest, fascination and a fear associated with ghosts regardless of the time and culture.
