“Pagan” possible linguistic origins

Everyone seems to want to use the word “Pagan”. It seems like it is some sort of catch all for people. Especially those of degenerate life styles and lack of morals who want to live in unnatural and ignoble ways (Adharmic if you will) and stick it to the “Abrahamics” while doing so. So here is a clear definition on what the word “Pagan” means. Originally where the word Pagan was used in the bible the word Ethnikos was used. Meaning those of the Ethnic faith. Also frequently the word Gentile is used to mean non-Jewish or a Christian who isn’t Jewish but isn’t Pagan. This word too began to take on the meaning similar to Pagan. Gentile (from Latin gentilis (“of or belonging to the same people or nation”), from gēns (“clan; tribe; people, family”) is similar to the root word we use for Genes. Which would imply folk or family. “Recorded in English since about 1375. Borrowed from Latin pāgānus (“rural, rustic”), later “civilian”. The meaning “not (Judeo-)Christian” arose in Vulgar Latin, probably from the 4th century. It is unclear whether this usage is derived primarily from the “rustic” or from the “civilian” meaning,
In Old Persian in pre-Zoroastrian Iran, the word “bagh [بغ]” (pl. “baghan”) meaning “god”, “creator” or “the greater” was used to refer to the gods especially Mithra. The practice of worshiping “baghan” is “baghani” religion [بغانی]. The word has entered Old Slavic Languages [“Бог” in Russian means “god”] and Latin through the practice of Mithraism, a mystery religion worshiping Mithras (Mitra) known as an early rival of Christianity. —Wikipedia”. This would imply people of Indo-European faith or people of the European rural faiths. Many people who claim the umbrella term “Pagan” people are not properly following the European Folk or family traditions or morals as they should. So they are not “Pagan”.
Paganism will always be centered around folk and family.
