- pastor:  Latin pāstor meant ‘shepherd’. It came from the same base as produced pāscere ‘feed’, source of English pasture and repast, and hence denoted etymologically ‘one who grazes sheep’. The ‘animal husbandry’ sense is still fairly alive and well in the derivative pastoral , but in pastor itself it has largely been ousted by ‘Christian minister’, inspired by the frequent metaphorical use of shepherd for ‘minister, priest’ in the Bible.
=> pasture, repast

- late 14c. (mid-13c. as a surname), "shepherd," also "spiritual guide, shepherd of souls," from Old French pastor, pastur "herdsman, shepherd" (12c.), from Latin pastorem (nominative pastor) "shepherd," from pastus, past participle of pascere "to lead to pasture, set to grazing, cause to eat," from PIE root *pa- "to tend, keep, pasture, feed, guard, protect" (see food).
