- mandate:  Etymologically, mandate means ‘give one’s hand’. It comes from mandātum (source also of English maundy), a noun use of the past participle of Latin mandāre ‘commit, command’. This verb was formed by blending manus ‘hand’ and dāre ‘give’. English verbs derived from mandāre are command, commend, demand, and remand.
