Is Inception a word? Inception meaning


Inception is an ancient word that dates back to the early 15th century. It comes from the Old French word, "inception", which comes from the (even older) Latin word "inceptionem" or "inceptus".

Similar to "origin", inception refers to the beginning or start of something. It's also a box office hit movie from 2010 starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

It's a great word to use in Scrabble because it has a lot of vowels, which can help clear your rack. It's not particularly high value, but it does provide lots of helpful opportunities for new words because the letters that make up "inception" are all fairly common. Plus, it sounds cool, which is probably why they named a movie after it.
