Etymology[edit | edit source]

Magus is the Latin word for "wizard". Its plural is Magi.

The job's Japanese name of (魔人, Majin?) derives from the Witch/Demon (, Ma?) and Person (, Jin?) kanjis. While Majin (魔人) has no direct single word English translation, the most common interpretations are that of magician, sorcerer, or conjurer.

While spelled the same in hiragana, (まじん, Majin?), the job's Japanese name is not the same word of Majin (魔神, Majin?) commonly used for Demons Gods, which derives from the Witch/Demon (, Ma?) and God (, Jin?) kanjis.

In the original fan-translations of the Famicom version, the Magus was known as Warlock. A warlock is a male practitioner of evil magic (distinguished from a wizard or sorcerer, whose magic may be benign).
