Etymologies

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[Middle English, from Old French, of unknown origin.]

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[Middle French, from Old French, from Latin pāgina; see pag- in Indo-European roots.]

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

Via Old French from Latin pāgina.

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

From Old French page, possibly via Italian paggio, from Late Latin pagius ("servant"), probably from Ancient Greek παιδίον (paidion, "boy, lad"), from παῖς (pais, "child"); some sources consider this unlikely and suggest instead Latin pagus ("countryside"), in sense of "boy from the rural regions". Used in English from the 13th century onwards.
