EtymologyEdit

In the Homeric Hymn to Hermes it is claimed that Πάν (Pán) derives from πᾶν (pân), neuter nominative singular of πᾶς (pâs, every) because "he delighted all".

Alternatively, the deity may be of Indo-European origin; see Sanskrit पूषन् (pūṣan) "Pushan," literally "nourisher," a Vedic god associated with guarding and multiplying cattle, from Proto-Indo-European *peh₂-.
