- over: [OE] Etymologically, over denotes ‘more up, upper’. It originated as an Indo-European comparative form derived from the base *upó ‘under’, which gave rise to English up. This became prehistoric Germanic *uberi, which has diversified into German über, Swedish öfver, and Dutch, Danish, and English over. A derivative of the same base forms the second syllable of English above, while amongst over’s more surprising relatives are eaves and evil.
=> above, eaves, evil, up
- over (prep.)

As an adjective from Old English uffera. As an adverb from late Old English. Sense of "finished" is attested from late 14c. Meaning "recovered from" is from 1929.
