Via Middle French from Latin pagina, from Proto-Indo-European *peh₂ǵ-. pagina.
From Old French page, possibly via Italian paggio, from Late Latin pagius ("servant"), probably from Ancient Greek παιδίον ("boy, lad"), from παῖς; 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.
