Triskaidekaphobia (TRIS-kye-DEK-ə-FOH-bee-ə) from Greek triskaideka – “thirteen” (tris = “three” + kai = “and” + deka = “ten”) + phobos = “fear” – is fear or avoidance of the number 13. It is also a reason for the fear of Friday the 13th, called paraskevidekatriaphobia (Greek for Friday) or friggatriskaidekaphobia, after Frigg, the Norse goddess after whom Friday is named in English. The term was used as early as in 1910 by Isador Coriat in Abnormal Psychology.
