Of uncertain origin, but likely from the Greek paidion, a diminutive of pais, and meaning littleboy or slave boy.To find, notify, or summon someone by using a loudspeaker system or radio system comprising a base station and small terminals known as pagers or beepers. Such systems have largely replaced human pages, who were young, uniformed attendants who performed tasks such as running errands and carrying messages in a hotel or legislature. Historically, pages were apprenticed to knights as an initial phase of their training for the knighthood. See also pager and paging system.

Origin of page

  • Middle French from Old French from Latin pāgina pag- in Indo-European roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Middle English from Old French of unknown origin

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Old French page, possibly via Italian paggio, from Late Latin pagius (“servant"), probably from Ancient Greek παιδίον (paidion, “boy, lad"), from παῖς (pais, “child"); some sources consider this unlikely and suggest instead Latin pagus (“countryside"), in sense of "boy from the rural regions". Used in English from the 13th century onwards.
