I wonder if these words have something to do with "Harry Potter."

According to Google, it's a magical spell to become invisible, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_of_Solomon

I suggest a better one:
W szale skrzypki trzy strzaskał mistrz.
if you like pronounciation challenges :P

It's not only Latin---that's for sure. I bet there are Latin roots, and other roots, combined into words.

James Joyce did this sort of thing in "Finnegan's Wake."

Try German.  A quick Internet search turned up a reference to "Grimoirium Verum", which is written in German.

They are names of demons.

It's probably some deformed Hebrew->Greek->Latin->German->whatever, the more exotic and obscure, the more magical it would sound.

I a lot of folk "spells" were deformed Latin - I heard "hocus pocus" comes from "hoc est corpus"...

Which led to the kids' song and dance called the "Hokey-Pokey" -- a thinly-veiled parody of Catholic Mass.

Why?  Are you looking to hang around the girls' locker room undetected?

Those demons' names are invoked are part of an (alleged) invisibility spell.

If it doesn’t work I wish to find out for myself.

I believe invisible people all around us, invisible government?
