Word Origin and History for scarab
“black dung beetle,” held sacred by the ancient Egyptians, 1570s, not as sexy as I thought it would be.
from Middle French scarabeé, from Latin scarabaeus, name of a type of beetle, from Greek karabos “beetle, crayfish” – now that sounds more like something that should be in the water.
a foreign word, according to Klein probably Macedonian (the suffix -bos is non-Greek). Related: Scarabaean. That would be a great boat name for a Scarab in the Caribbean, right? “Scarabbean”.
In ancient use, also a gem cut in a shape like a scarab beetle and with an inscription on the underside. Sounds like money.
It’s pretty common to create striping designs that go over the rub rail and onto the faring and deck. When submitting photos of your boat, be sure and include those with dimensions as well!
