Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : 17th-century English speakers combined the Latin noun gratia, meaning “grace” or “favor,” with the English prefix in- to create the verb ingratiate. When you ingratiate yourself, you are putting yourself in someone’s good graces to gain their approval or favour. English words related to ingratiate include gratis and gratuity. Both of these reflect something done or given as a favor through the good graces of the giver.
