And while we're birthing and rebirthing things, how about the word nation? It, too, comes from nasci, from Latin to Middle French to Middle English to us. So, in a way, that trite phrase and controversial old movie, "birth of a nation," is redundant.
In a way, of course. Etymology does not dictate meaning; it tells you where a word comes from, but not what a word is.
