Etymology: first + born
A firstborn (also known as an eldest child or sometimes firstling) is the first child born to in the birth order of a couple through childbirth. Historically, the role of the firstborn child has been socially significant, particularly for a firstborn son in patriarchal societies. In law, many systems have incorporated the concept of primogeniture, wherein the firstborn child inherits their parent's property. The firstborn in Judaism, the bechor, is also accorded a special position. While an only child will by definition also always be the "firstborn", in larger families the firstborn often perceives themself to be treated differently from later children.
first brought forth; first in the order of nativity; eldest; hence, most excellent; most distinguished or exalted
