Middle English: from Old French, from Latin patientia, from patient- 'suffering', from the verb pati.
Hospital patients have to have patience, and they sometimes suffer, so it is not surprising that the Latin word pati ‘to suffer’ is the root of both patience and patient (Middle English). People have maintained that patience is a virtue since the 14th century, though a Latin equivalent is recorded much earlier. As a card game patience dates from the early 19th century—the earlier name, still used in the USA, is solitaire ( see sole).
