My father came from Liverpool in the UK and was born there in the early 1950s. He always referred to his Father (when writing him a birthday card) as 'Pater'.
I was reading a psychology book yesterday on learning methods - they refer to PATE as a learning method because Pate meant head.
These seem similar - but I can't sort the connections, or see the underlying order.
My question is: Do Pate (head) and Pater (Father) come from the same origin?
