Background / Comments
This word has an interesting double reference. First of all, it comes from the Latin word fatum (fate), making our word related to “fate”, which comes from the same word. The literal meaning of fatum is “what has been spoken” — the belief of the ancients was that one’s fate was completely in the hands of the gods. The second part of our word is dicere (to say), which is the same root for “predict”.
