In 1927, Newt Scamander used this spell to lift a powerful love enchantment that was placed on Jacob Kowalski by his fiancee Queenie Goldstein. As a result of the spell, Kowalski awoke from the dreamlike enchanted state, and regained an awareness of reality in the present.
Surgito is a Latin word in the imperative form meaning "you/he/she shall arise, or get up", and is a conjugation of the verb surgo ("I arise"). The etymology is appropriate, considering that the effects of the spell on Jacob Kowalski can be likened to waking up from a confused, dreamlike state.
