I took this from Wiki as it describes the words etymology best;


Theories about the source of the word are:

 Latin Base:In latin based languages the word Abre or Abri means "To Open" and a Cadaver is a corpse.
So the incantation that is used in these old movies and cartoons is a litteral Spell Phrase taken from the Occult practice of Necromancy... "To Open the Corpse"
This practice was connected with "reading the entrails" as well as other forms of sorcery, necromancy and witchcraft.


Aramaic Base:  "I create as I speak"A possible source is Aramaic: אברא כדברא avra kedabra which means "Creating as speaking" which is thought to be in reference to God creating the universe (in some belief systems, ex nihilo, most notably the Abrahamic religions), by speaking (see also Fiat Lux). An alternative spelling is avda K'Davarah. One may also view it as "I transgress as I speak" in the Aramaic עבריה כדבריה which is phonetically closer.
However, it seems likely that abracadabra is older and that it derives from one of the Semitic languages, though nobody can say for sure, because there is no written record before Serenus Sammonicus. Some suggested theories regarding its source: [1]
  • It's from the Aramaic phrase avra kehdabra, meaning "I will create as I speak".
  • The source is three Hebrew words, ab (father), ben (son), and ruach acodesch (holy spirit).
  • It's from the Chaldean abbada ke dabra, meaning "perish like the word".
  • It originated with a Gnostic sect in Alexandria called the Basilidians and was probably based on Abrasax, the name of their supreme deity (Abraxas in Latin sources).
 The curse and the pestilenceThere is the view that Abracadabra derives from the Hebrew, ha-brachah, meaning "the blessing" (used in this sense as a euphemism for "the curse") and dabra, an Aramaic form of the Hebrew word dever, meaning "pestilence." They point to a similar kabbalistic cure for blindness, in which the name of Shabriri, the demon of blindness, is similarly diminished. Other scholars are skeptical of this origin and claim that the idea of diminishing the power of demons was common throughout the ancient world, and that Abracadabra was simply the name of one such demon.

What does Hebrew mean?

Real Answer The truth is that know one knows. The Hebrew word for Hebrew is 'ivri (עברי) which may come from the Hebrew word ever (עבר), which means "beyond". The significance is a reference to Abraham coming from "beyond the river". Metaphysical Answer Hibiru is one of the ancient names of Egypt, Hibiru being a variation on the spelling Nibiru which is a supposed planet that exists where the Elohim came from, a superior race of angelic beings who came to earth to enlighten man. This speculative definition would justify the reason why we have a hebrew race which in actuality is nothing more than Aryan, not Hebrew. Heber in Hebrew means "that which passes further; on the other side; a passing over; a going beyond;ultramundane; beyond the terrestrial; not of this world; hidden from sense; occult.

What does Jerusalem mean in Hebrew?

The Hebrew word for Jerusalem is Yerushalayim (ירושלים).. A city called Rushalimum or Urushalimum (Foundation of Shalem) appears in ancient Egyptian records as the first two references to Jerusalem, in about 2000 BCE and 1330 BCE. The form Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) first appears in the Bible, in the book of Joshua. This form has the appearance of a combination of Yireh (an abiding place of the fear and the service of G-d) and the original root ש.ל.מ (Sh-L-M). The meaning of the root ש.ל.מ (Sh-L-M) is thought to refer to either "peace" (Salam or Shalom in modern Arabic and Hebrew) or Shalim, the god of dusk in the Canaanite religion. Typically the ending -im indicates the plural in Hebrew grammar and -ayim the dual thus leading to the suggestion that the name refers to the fact that the city sits on two hills. However the pronunciation of the last syllable as -ayim appears to be a late development.
