  • nephew from Middle English:

    A nephew could originally also be a grandson—the word nephew comes via Old French neveu, from Latin nepos ‘nephew, grandson’. Nepotism (mid 17th century), or favouritism towards friends or relations, also comes from nepos. The reference is to privileged treatment formerly given to the ‘nephews’ of popes, who were in many cases their illegitimate sons. Niece (Middle English) comes from Latin neptis the feminine form of nepos.
