Abnormal meaning in Etymology Dictionary

1835, displaced older abnormous (1742) and competing anormal (1835) under influence of Latin abnormis "deviating from a rule," from ab- "off, away from" (see ab-) + norma "rule" (see norm). The older kinds were via Old French anormal (13c.), from Medieval Latin anormalos, from Greek anomalos, from an- "not" + homalos, from homos "same." The Greek word ended up being changed in Latin by association with norma. Associated: Unusually.
