Ever

Ever comes from the English adverb meaning “at all times, always” from Middle English evere via Old English ǣfre (ever) derived from an uncertain origin, though it also means “at any time” and “in any way”. It could possibly be from a contraction of a in feore meaning “ever in life” made up from Old English ā (ever, always) via Proto-Germanic *aiwaz (eternity, age; law) derived from a PIE root word; and  Old English feorh (life, existence) also derived from a PIE root word. Ever could also be from Old English eofor meaning “boar; wild boar”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
