Commentary

Etymology

The incantation Avenseguim is possibly derived from avens, a Latin adjective for "eager" or "craving", and seguir, the Spanish and Portuguese verb meaning "to follow". Together, Avenseguim can be interpreted as "to eagerly follow".

Notes

The incantation is incorrectly spelled as "Avensegium" in the companion books, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: Magical Movie Handbook" and "Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts: A Spellbinding Guide to the Films".
