EtymologyEdit

From Middle Irish páitse (compare Irish páiste, Manx paitçhey), from Old French page, possibly via Italian paggio, from Late Latin pagius (servant), 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".

NounEdit

pàisde m (genitive singular pàisde, plural pàisdean)

  1. baby, child, kid
