==Etymology==
 
Latin ''vade'', "travel." Possibly Swedish ''vadd'', meaning "soft mass" (in this case, gum); or French ''vas y'', "go there," as Lupin also directed the object upwards; or possibly from the English ''wad'', as in "a wad of gum". Waddiwasi may also be a combination of the words ''wad ''and ''kamikaze''. In this case, the spell's function is most likely to be as simple as causing a wad of something to launch itself sacrificially at someone nearby. As the perfect spitball launcher, such a charm would doubtless have been a favorite tool in the arsenal of troublemakers like Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs.
