I don't think it has anything to do with eating pigs.

'Im-' is putting in or increasing. '-pig-' could be the same root as 'pigment'. '-norate' is process, I suspect. So, perhaps adding colour or stain?

Judging by those examples, it could be the use of something allowed by agreement without impugning any legal right or obligation.

They say that neither is it 'to impregnate pigs'. It is to 'pledge, pawn, or mortgage'. I don't think I'll be using it! :lol:

Definition

My immediate thought is that it is related to valedictorian, a US academic term for someone who is asked to give a closing address. Vale is the clue, I suspect. Someone who is focused on the "end times" perhaps.
A good guess Perry. I see the val bit is more related to valere ( health, strength, courage) than to vale (goodbye). It goes from there to 'state of health" so includes ill health! I like to think of it as 'someone who enjoys ill health'. :lol:
