From late 15c., from Middle French entretenement and derived ultimately from Latin inter- “among, inside” + tenir (from the Proto-Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch, or to hold something in place) + mentum, a suffix used with verb stems to form nouns of enjoyment, amusement, etc. (as in amazement, enlightenment, betterment, merriment).
