Actually is from Latin presti digiti (though the neologism was originated in France :thumbup ):

It was here that Houdin became acquainted with Jules de Rovere, of noble birth, a conjurer who abandoned the title of escamoteur, as beneath his aristocratic dignity, and coined for himself the pompous cognomen,prestidigitateur, from presti digiti (activity of the fingers). The French Academy sanctioned the formation of this word, thus handing it down to posterity.

I find fun :lol: when I can spot in a "foreign" language a single word that is clearly an "import":

prestidigitator <- English (ok not really common) http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/definitions/prestidigitator

prestidigitateur <-French

prestidigitatore (o prestigiatore) <-Italian

prestidigitador <- Spanish

prestidigitador <- Portuguese

prestidigitator <- Romanian

Yes, really sorry if my link to that site has offended anyone, it was not my intention, we were just having some "generic" fun, and we mocked a little bit everyone, including the good Polish :), but absolutely no particular meaning was given to any of the post.

Just not to be accused to be partial, a (completely off-topic :ph34r: ) representation of a dangerous e-mail Irish virus:

and the usual approach to work in Italy ;):
