As far as I know, the word "witch" was first used in America to describe a woman that was most likely old, estranged, and senile. In other words, a woman who was decrepit and abnormal.
It got changed to mean a woman who engaged in "black" magic back around the Salem trials times.
But the actual word witch came from the Old English word wicca
, which is also a religion now.
Never thought me studying Wicca all those years ago would have had any use.
