Late Middle English: from Old French accompagner, from a- (from Latin ad 'to, at') + compagne, from Old French compaignon 'companion'. The spelling change was due to association with company.

  • companion from Middle English:

    A companion is literally ‘a person who you eat bread with’. The word comes from Old French compaignon, from Latin com- ‘together with’ and panis ‘bread’. Other English words that derive from panis include pannier (Middle English), pastille (mid 17th century) a ‘little loaf’ of something, and pantry (Middle English). Company (Middle English) and accompany (Late Middle English) come from the same root.
