Middle English, shortening of Old English gemǣne, of Germanic origin, from an Indo-European root shared by Latin communis 'common'. The original sense was 'common to two or more persons', later 'inferior in rank', leading to sense 3 and a sense 'ignoble, small-minded', from which senses 1 and 2 (which became common in the 19th cent.) arose
Middle English: from Old French meien, from Latin medianus 'middle' (see median)
