German (Westphalia): topographic name for a field or meadow which was used at Easter as a playground; etymologically two sources seem to be combined: Latin pascuum ‘pasture’ and Middle Low German pāsche(n) ‘Easter’ (see Paasch ). German: in some cases from a short form of the Latin personal name Paschalis (see Paschal ). Germanized form of Czech and Slovak Paš (see Pas ). Germanized form of Sorbian Paš: from a pet form of a personal name beginning with Pa- especially Pakosław (composed of the Old Slavic elements pak ‘again more’ + slav ‘glory’ or ‘famous’).
