From Middle Dutch wāge f, alternative form of rare waech m, from Old Dutch *wāg, from Proto-West Germanic *wāg, from Proto-Germanic *wēgaz. The feminine may be a mere variant (if old from Old Dutch *wāga, from Proto-West Germanic *wāgu, from Proto-Germanic *wēgō), or it may be due to a merger with another word with an original short vowel, which is attested in Middle High German wage (movement, shaking), Old High German waga.
