Word Origin & History

deep
O.E. deop, from P.Gmc. *deupaz, from PIE *d(e)u- "deep, hollow" (cf. O.C.S. duno "bottom, foundation," O.Ir. domun "world," via sense development from "bottom" to "foundation" to "earth" to "world"). Figurative sense was in O.E.; extended 16c. to color, sound. Deep pocket "wealth" is from 1951. Deep-freeze
was a registered trademark (U.S. Patent Office, 1941) of a type of refrigerator; used generically for "cold storage" since 1949. To go off the deep end "lose control of oneself" is slang first recorded 1921, probably in reference to the deep end of a swimming pool, where a person on the surface can no longer touch bottom. When 3-D films seemed destined to be the next wave and the biggest thing to hit cinema since "talkies," they were known as deepies (1953). The gods have spared us.

end
O.E. ende, from P.Gmc. *andja (cf. O.Fris. enda, O.N. endir, O.H.G. enti), originally "the opposite side," from PIE *antjo "end, boundary," from base anta-/*anti- "opposite, in front of, before" (see ante). Original sense of "outermost part" is obsolete except in phrase ends
of the earth. Sense of "destruction, death" was in O.E. Meaning "division or quarter of a town" was in O.E. The verb is from O.E. endian. The end "the last straw, the limit" (in a disparaging sense) is from 1929. The phrase end run is first attested 1902 in U.S. football; extended to military tactics in World War II; general fig. sense is from 1968. End time in ref. to the end of the world is from 1917. Be-all and end-all is from Shakespeare ("Macbeth" I.vii.5).
"Worldly wealth he cared not for, desiring onely to make both ends meet." [1662]
