EtymologyEdit

In both Spanish and Portuguese, água means "water" and mente means "mind"; these derive from the Latin terms aqua ("water") and mens ("mind"), the latter's singular dative case rendered as menti ("to the mind" or "for the mind"). Given J.K. Rowling's love of puns, it would also seem plausible that there might have been a hybrid of água and "augment", in the sense of "increase", in her mind.
