Quiz: from the Latin "qui es"

I have another quiz to offer today: Etymologic... which claims to be the toughest etymology game on the web.

I got 6 out of 10, which I don't think was bad for a mostly-guess. My stratergy was to go for the least likely answer. Which seemed to work.

Incidentally, Wikipedia tells us that the etymology of etymology is: "from the Greek ἔτυμον (étymon, true meaning, from 'etymos' true) and λόγος (lógos, word)." Just in case that comes up in the quiz.
