paciente (Adjective, Noun) "patient"
15th cent. From Latin patientem, accusative of patiens 'id.' From pati "to experience" (see padecer), as a patient is one who experiences and endures a malady.
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Portuguese paciente, French patient, Italian paziente; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Romanian pacient
pacto m. (Noun) "pact"
13th cent. From Latin pactum "agreement," from the verb pascici "to form an agreement." From pax "peace" (see paz).
padecer (Verb) "to suffer;" "to endure"
13th cent. From Vulgar Latin padescere 'id.,' from pati "to experience" and an inchoative suffix -escere (see -ecer). Note that padecer replaced the more common Old Spanish verb padir "to suffer," taken free of the inchoative suffix from Vulgar Latin *padire 'id.,' from Latin *pati. From Proto-Italic *pat-i- 'id.' Of unknown origin. Theories include Proto-Indo-European *ph1-t- "suffering" and *pet-i- "to befall." Yet *ph1-t- would not yield pati in Latin and the primary sense of *pet- was "to fly," so the proverbial jury of specialists is still out.
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Portuguese padecer, Catalan patir, French pâtir, Italian patire; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Aromanian pat, pãtsãscu, Romanian păți; Sardinian: patire
padre m. (Noun) "father"
12th cent. From Latin patrem, accusative of pater 'id.' From Proto-Italic *pater 'id.' From Proto-Indo-European *ph2tḗr "father," but more anciently "protector." From the root *peh2- "to protect."
Use in the plural meaning "parents" is from Vulgar Latin *patres "parents," "ancestors," "fathers;" accusative plural of Latin pater. The earliest Spanish texts when naming parents strictly use parientes. Only in the 13th cent. (and rarely) does padres "parents" occur. By the 14th cent., padres and parientes were in equal competition. Fahnestock & Peaks (1913) assume the Vulgar Latin use of *patres for both parents and fathers was under influence from Greek, which had done the same.

As a surname, given in religious reference to God the Father, second person of the Christian Trinity.

"Unlike [Late Proto-Indo-European] *māter ‘mother’, *pəter does not denote the physical parent, as is evidenced, for instance, by the ancient juxtaposition preserved in Latin Iupiter....

"The personal “father” is atta, which alone survives in Hittite, Gothic and Slavic. If in these languages the ancient term *pəter has been replaced by atta, this is because *pəter was originally a classificatory term." ~ E. Benveniste, Indo-European Language and Society (1973)
pagar (Verb) "to pay"
12th cent. From Latin pacare, defined in Roberts (2014) as "to pacify (after having conquered)." A verb formed from pax "peace" (see paz).
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian pagar, Portuguese pagar, Galician pagar, Catalan pagar, French payer, Italian pacare; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Romanian împăca; Sardinian: pacare

pago (1) m. (Noun) "farm;" "rural district"
Very late 15th cent. From Latin pagus 'id.,' literally "boundary marked by stakes." From Proto-Italic *pāg-o- "district," from Proto-Indo-European *peh2ǵ-os 'id.' From the root verb *peh2ǵ- "to attach."

pájaro m. (Noun) "bird"
13th cent. Old Spanish passaro. From Vulgar Latin passar 'id.' (Classical Latin passer "sparrow"). From Proto-Italic *pattro- 'id.' From Proto-Indo-European *pt-tro- "bird." From a root *pet- "to fly," with a possible (though tenuous) connection to pedir. This concise etymology is from Schrijver (1991), who proposes a reduction of the Proto-Italic nominative singular *pattros to a later *passr̥s and then finally passer.
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian páxaru, Portuguese pássaro, Galician paxaro, French passereau, Italian passero; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Romanian pasăre
In the 3rd or 4th cent. text Appendix Probi we find the line: passer non passar "[the word for 'bird' is] passer, not passar." The author's spelling correction proves how the word was pronounced by common speakers, and offers a rare glimpse of the evolution of Latin into Romance languages such as Spanish.
palabra f. (Noun) "word"
12th cent. Old Spanish parabla via metathesis. From Late Latin parabola "speech" but originally in Latin "comparison." Borrowed from Ancient Greek παραβολή (parabolé) "comparison;" "parable" (whence parábola).
