French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French aage, aige, eage, from earlier edage. This either stems from a Vulgar Latin *aetāticum, from Latin aetās, or from Old French , (itself from Latin aetātem) + the suffix -age. The Latin aetās derives from a syncope of an earlier aevitās, from Proto-Italic *aiwotāts, from *aiwom + *-tāts, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂eyu- (vital energy), from *h₂ey-.
