Early 17th century (also in the sense 'mimic or jester'): from Latin mimus, from Greek mimos.

  • pantomime from late 16th century:

    This word comes from Greek pantomimos ‘imitator of all’. In Latin pantomimus was used for an actor using mime. This later developed into a comic dramatization with the stock characters of Clown, Pantaloon ( see pantaloons), Harlequin, and Columbine. The familiar panto based on fairy tales such as Mother Goose or Cinderella and involving music, topical jokes, and slapstick comedy developed in the 19th century, with a new set of conventional characters including the dame, the principal boy, and the pantomime horse. Mime (early 17th century) and mimic (late 16th century) come from the same root.
