Awesome quiz, but, maybe a little more time would be good.. and some of the clues aren't exactly perfect.. could lead you to different answers. Sometimes I would guess one thing and get the answer for something else. Other times I think there are other answers that fit that don't show up, like, "ignominius" which I'm sure has the same root for "notorious." That's one example there are at least 6 or 7 others. A 6000 year old word will end up with a lot of derivatives. Anyway, cool quiz regardless.

Actually, "ignominious" is not a "know" word; it's in the "name" (originally something like "nomn") family. (Compare with "cognomen", "nomination", "nomenclature", "nominal", "noun", "binomial", etc.)

Indeed. Or, more literally, "causing loss of one's good name". Nothing to do with knowledge.
