Accident: word origins

Accident: An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury. (oxforddictionaries.com)

Accident came into English in the 14th Century, and originally only meant an incident, something that happened by chance, not necessarily something that was a mistake or negative. 346 kata lagi

Gaius

Gaius is a Roman given name though one of uncertain etymology. It could be derived from Latin gaudere meaning “to rejoice”. It’s also possible that it might be derived from Gaia, a feminine name meaning “earth” in Greek, or perhaps from an Etruscan source that has long since lost its meaning. 75 kata lagi
