From Vulgar Latin or Late Latin ingannō (“I trick, deceive, mock, ridicule”) (attested in a gloss), from Latin *ganno or ganniō. Compare Romanian îngâna, îngân (“imitate, mimic, parody; delude oneself, mix up”). The semantics of this verb have shifted far from the original meaning in Latin, and also further than in Daco-Romanian, where the primary sense is to imitate or mimic; presumably from Proto-Romanian, the it shifted to the specific sense of calling an animal within Aromanian.

- I call (an animal).
angan f (genitive singular anganar, no plural)
