  1. For the origin of venerate, this is what Dictionary.com has to say:

    Origin:
    1615–25; < Latin venerātus, past participle of venerārī to solicit the goodwill of (a god), worship, revere, verbal derivative of vener-, stem of venus, presumably in its original sense “desire”; see Venus)

    So the same root originally, but evolved in a totally different direction over time!
