A day after the Japanese attacked the Pearl Harbor, just a day before the start of the Second World War, the then President Roosevelt described the day as “a day that will live in infamy.” Even though infamy is rooted in word fame, the meaning was opposite as “the opposite of famous,” and its purpose is something closer to “fame gone bad.”
