Word History
The earliest meaning of fellow in English was "partner." The word "fellow" comes from an early Norse word that meant "fee layer," or a person who lays down money for some enterprise. Those who put their money or property together were partners, or "fellows." In Iceland, the word was also used for a husband or wife.
