A mnemonic device:

Observe the Greek vocabulary word ἐγείρω, pronounced e-gei-row, and it means "I raise up."

What we see is a young Robin Hood who says, "I raise up an egg-arrow". Look at the egg-shaped arrow which the little Robin Hood "raises up." We will not easily forget the (humorously absurd) picture.
