Origen

late Middle English (in the sense 'solemn ceremony'): from Old French celebrite or Latin celebritas, from celeber, celebr- 'frequented or honoured'.

  • A celebrity was originally a solemn ceremony, although the Latin source of celebrity and celebrate, from the same period and originally meaning to perform a public religious ceremony, is closer to our modern sense. It comes from Latin celebritas, from celeber ‘frequented or honoured’.
