inspirator

noun; derivation
A person who inspires others. This word was spoken by Snoop Dog during the Fox News Channel coverage of the pending execution of Stanley Williams. In context the word is used as a term of respect. An “inspirator” is a person who has inspired others, presumably in a positive way. Normally I would say this type of derivation is short lived and circumstance-specific, but because of Snoop Dog’s position and the fact that it was said on national television, I feel that this word has a fighting chance of becoming popular. I doubt it will be in the dictionaries next year, but it has a decent chance of showing up in slang.
 
He is an inspirator.
Etymology : inspire from Middle English enspiren, from Old French enspirer, from Latin inspirare; + -ator from Latin –ator 'acts in a specified manner'.
