Irish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Early Modern Irish páitse (compare Manx paitçhey, Scottish Gaelic pàisde), from Old French page, from Late Latin pagius ‎(servant) (possibly via Italian paggio), 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".
