Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English mese, mes, mees (dinner, dish), from Old English mēse, mēose, mīse, mȳse (table; that which is set on a table; dish; food, meal), a vernacular loan from Latin/Late Latin mē(n)sa (table; meal). Cognate with Scots mes, mese (a serving of food), Old High German mias, meas (German Mus, Gemüse), Gothic 𐌼𐌴𐍃 (mēs). Compare Old English mēsan (to eat, dine), from Proto-Germanic *mōsijaną, from Proto-Germanic *mōsą, an ablaut variant of the root Proto-Germanic mat- (food).
