Hmmm, in czech we have word "Pár" for couple (it can also mean "Few"), too. What is origin of this word, please?

It's originally from the Latin 'par'

It's the same as English 'pair', which we had from Latin via French.

Considering it has cognates in Czech, Norwegian and English, I wonder if it doesn't go further back than Latin.

I feel like it's saying "bar" rather than par!

I don't disagree. The 'p' should sound like a 'p'.
