From Middle English, from Old French sens, sen, san (“sense, reason, direction”); partly from Latin sensus (“sensation, feeling, meaning”), from sentiō (“feel, perceive”); partly of Germanic origin (whence also Occitan sen, Italian senno), from Frankish *sinn (“reason, judgement, mental faculty, way, direction”), from Proto-Germanic *sinnaz (“mind, meaning”). Both Latin and Germanic from Proto-Indo-European *sent- (“to feel”). Compare French assener (“to thrust out”), forcené (“maniac”). More at send.
