- stencil:  Stencil was originally a verb, meaning ‘decorate with bright colours’. It came from Old French estenceler ‘cause to sparkle’, a derivative of estencele ‘spark’. This was descended from Vulgar Latin *stincilla, an alteration of Latin scintilla ‘spark’ (source of English scintilla ‘jot’  and scintillate ). There are no records of this original verb beyond the 15th century, and the noun stencil ‘sheet with cut-out designs’ did not appear until the early 18th century, but despite the long gap, they are generally assumed to be the same word.
=> scintillate, tinsel
