Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Reflects a Proto-Indo-European **ǵenh₁-tos, which displaced the original *ǵn̥h₁-tós, whence Latin nātus, which came to belong to a different verb. In light of Proto-Italic *genatā, the change conceivably happened during the Italic period, though see there for possible counterarguments.
