EtymologyEdit

A modern coinage, meant to be the opposite of sinonīms, with components derived from Ancient Greek ἀντί (antí, against) and ὄνομα (ónoma, name), with variants that arose in various European languages around 1850-1870. It was borrowed into Latvian and made into a masculine first-declension noun (ending -s), by analogy with sinonīms.
