Etymology of macabre?
#1
It is said, this word comes etymological related to the Maccabeans.

However, I wonder if there would be an existing word m-qbr (grave) in Aramaic, which could have such an impact on Western speakers, that they imported it?

Does there indeed exist something like m-qbr which has any meaning?

Thanks.
