- maze:  Maze was originally a verb (now obsolete) meaning ‘daze’, which arose by shortening of amaze. When it was first used as a noun it meant ‘delusion, delirium’, and it was not until the late 14th century that it began to be used for a ‘structure of bewildering complexity’.
- maze (n.)
- c. 1300, "delusion, bewilderment" (also as a verb, "stupefy, daze"), possibly from Old English *mæs, which is suggested by the compound amasod "amazed" and verb amasian "to confound, confuse" (see amaze). Perhaps related to Norwegian dialectal mas "exhausting labor," Swedish masa "to be slow or sluggish." Meaning "labyrinth" first recorded late 14c.
