Table of Contents
Notion has several different definitions.
The oldest usage dates back to the late 14th century and is probably still the most common meaning today. It means "a general concept or idea". It comes from the Latin word "notionem", which kind of sounds made up but was once an actual word.
The famous Roman philosopher Cicero supposedly loved the word "notion" and used it regularly in his writings. He created a complete dictionary of common philosophical terms and used it to translate Greek writings to Roman. He states that notion comes from the Greek word "énnoia," which describes the act of thinking or reflecting on a topic.
Notion is also used to describe someone's opinion, idea, or viewpoint on a particular subject. This meaning is more recent, dating back to the 1600s.
Many people also use "notion" to describe small miscellaneous items — usually tools or useful things. This dates back to 1803 and refers to the "clever product of invention".
Notion is kind of an odd word that is rather vague but also describes a lot of different things at once. You can use it pretty much however you want; you have about a 50/50 chance of using it correctly, even if you have no idea what it means.
