    It seems likely that abracadabra derives from one of the Semitic languages, though nobody can say for sure, because there is no written record before Serenus Sammonicus. For what it’s worth, here are some theories:

    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 acadosch (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).
