EtymologyEdit

From French mentor, from Ancient Greek Μέντωρ (Méntōr, Mentor), a mythological character in the Odyssey, whose name, a historical name from Ancient Greece, may share the same root as English mind.[1] Akin to Sanskrit मन्तृ (mantṛ, one who thinks) and Latin monitor (one who admonishes), and perhaps ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *mon-eyo-, causative form of *men- (to think).[2]
