Chagrined & Bewildered®

Chagrined
From the Turkish saghri, a rough-surfaced leather. We call this material “shagreen”. It was the French who started using it metaphorically for “that which frets or worries the mind” (OED), and when we followed suit we adopted their spelling too.
Bewildered
In deserto.
