Word Origin & History

date
"time," early 14c., from O.Fr. date, from M.L. data, noun use of fem. sing. of L. datus "given," pp. of dare "to give, grant, offer," from PIE base *do- "to give" (cf. Skt. dadati "gives," O.Pers. dadatuv "let him give," O.C.S. dati "give," Gk. didomi, didonai, "to give, offer," O.Ir. dan "gift, talent").
The Roman convention of closing every article of correspondence by writing "given" and the day and month -- meaning "given to messenger" -- led to data becoming a term for "the time (and place) stated." Dated "old-fashioned" is attested from 1900.

date
"fruit," late 13c., from O.Fr. date, from O.Prov. datil, from L. dactylus, from Gk. daktylos "date," orig. "finger, toe," because of fancied resemblance between oblong fruit of the date palm and human digits. Possibly from a Sem. source (cf. Heb. deqel, Aram. diqla, Arabic daqal "date palm") and assimilated
to the Gk. word for "finger."

date
"romantic liaison," 1885, gradually evolving from date (1) in its general sense of "appointment;" the verb in this sense is first recorded 1902. Meaning "person one has a date with" is from 1925.
