What is the origin of the word "Goodbye"? [Random Knowledge #20]
posted March 7 2013 20:37.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis

The word Goodbye comes from the phrase "god be with you". The phrase was shortened over the years since the 16th century. Shakespeare used this phrase as "god be wy you". Over time, the word "god" was substituted by the word "good" probably due to the relation of this phrase with other phrases like "good day" or "good night".
