"Companion"
"Companion"
- etymology -

​The English word "companion" derives from the Late Latin word "compāniō". Based on the roots "com-" ("with") and "panis" ("bread"), it is a Latin translation of an old Germanic term for someone with whom you'd eat a meal. In other words, you would share bread with a companion.
