Surgito was the incantation of a Counter-charm that can be used to remove an enchantment.[1]

History

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.[1]

Etymology

Surgito is a Latin word in the imperative form meaning "you/he/she shall arise, or get up",[2] and is a conjugation of the verb surgo ("I arise").[3] 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.
