The Word ‘Honeymoon’
There are several theories on its origin:
The Norse word “hjunottsmanathr” is considered by some to be the origin of the word honeymoon. Hjunottsmanathr actually means “in hiding”. The Scandinavian grooms were some of the cultured blokes we spoke of earlier who abducted their brides from local villages, kept them in hiding until they were pregnant, or until the bride’s family ceased searching, and then presented themselves to the bride’s family as a fait accompli. This gives new meaning to the word “elope”, doesn’t it?
Another theory for the word honeymoon stems from the ancient practice in many cultures of drinking a honeyed mead for the first month of the marriage. The honeyed wine, known as hydromel, metheglin or mead, was purported to have aphrodisiac properties, and was also considered by many to enhance the fertility of the wedded couple.
The ancient Teutons and the Babylonians all practiced the drinking of the honeyed wine for the thirty days after the wedding day. The Babylonian father-in-laws supposedly fed their new son-in-laws honeyed mead every night for a month after the wedding.
Did you know that Attila the Hun supposedly died of an overdose of hydromel at his wedding feast? (Is this a historic version of a Viagra induced heart attack?)
Northern Europeans believed that drinking the metheglin would bring them additional luck in their marriages.
Others believe that the word “moon” was introduced into the term honeymoon to reflect the cyclical waxing and waning of a married couple’s affections for each other. The word “honey” obviously implying the sweetest of times directly after the marriage ceremony.
