From Late Latin ēns (“thing”), from esse (“to be”). See entity.
ens (plural enses or entia)
ens (proclitic, enclitic nos, contracted enclitic 'ns)
From Latin ēns (“being”); compare Spanish ente.
ens m (plural ens)
From Old Norse eins, from Middle Low German eines.
Formed as a present participle of sum (“to be”) in Medieval Latin (and therefore unknown in the Classical period) by using the bare present participial ending -ēns of second and third conjugation verbs, as an analogy to the Ancient Greek present participle ὤν (ṓn) which falsely appears to be the same bare suffix but etymologically corresponds to sōns, both from *h₁es- (“to be”). See also essentia for a similar formation.
The original present participle sōns had taken on the meaning "guilty" in the Classical period, but the still productive combining form -sēns present in the verbs absum (absēns (“absent”)) and praesum (praesēns (“present”)) was ignored in creating this form.
