What is the Latin meaning of the word 'mortgage'?
The word 'mortgage' comes into Middle English by way of Middle and Old French. All three words are the same, and have the same meaning of 'dead-gauge' or 'dead security'. The notion tracks back to ancient Roman times. But the word for mortgage in ancient, classical Latin was 'pignus', in the noun form; and 'pignori dare' and 'obligare', as verbs. In both forms, they related to giving and respecting an 'assurance' or of a 'pawn, pledge, security, or token'. Additionally, they related to giving and honoring a 'bet, stake, or wager'.
