Origen

Middle English: from Old French, based on Latin missus, past participle of mittere 'send'.

More
  • The root of message is a form of Latin mittere ‘to send’ that is the source of Mass and missile as well as of messenger (Middle English) and demise (Late Middle English). The phrase to shoot (or kill) the messenger, ‘to treat the bearer of bad news as if they were personally to blame for it’, is recorded only from the 1960s, but breaking bad news has always been a thankless task. The idea occurs at least twice in Shakespeare—in Coriolanus there is reference to beating the messenger—and the ancient Greek dramatist Sophocles expressed it as ‘No one loves the messenger who brings bad news.’
