Word History: Both aim and estimate come from a Latin verb aestimare, meaning "to value" or "to estimate." Through sound changes over the centuries aestimare became in Old French esmer, which meant "to aim, direct, or adjust," as well as "to appreciate" and "to estimate." English borrowed the word aim from the Old French word, and then took the word estimate directly from Latin.
