NAME ORIGIN
    To confuse is to cause someone to fail to distinguish between things (such as friends or enemies). The word comes from the Latin word confusus meaning "to mix together".
    In the original NES release, this spell's name was shortened to CONF because of the 4 character limit on magic names.
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this spell was called Muddle. To muddle is to mix up in a confused or bungling manner. The word comes from the Middle Dutch word modden which means "to make muddy".
