Mahrime refers to a concept of ritual unlceanliness with many Vlach and Northern Roma groups, usually opposed to the term žužo ("ritually clean"). The term derives from Greek. In England and Wales "moxado" is used instead, in Poland "magerdó". Both terms mean "besmirched" and go back to the Sanskrit word "mraks" ("smeared"). Sinti describe the ritual uncleanliness with "palećido" (neglected, isolated) and "prast(l)o" (infame, outlawed).
