Etymology[edit]

From Middle Irish páitse (compare Irish páiste, Manx paitçhey), from Old French page, possibly via Italian paggio, from Late Latin pagius ‎(servant), probably from Ancient Greek παιδίον ‎(paidíon, boy, lad), from παῖς ‎(paîs, child); some sources consider this unlikely and suggest instead Latin pagus ‎(countryside), in sense of "boy from the rural regions".

Noun[edit]

pàisde m ‎(genitive singular pàisde, plural pàisdean)

  1. baby, child, kid
