Old English me (dative), me, mec (accusative); oblique cases of I, from Proto-Germanic *meke (accusative), *mes (dative), cf. Old Frisian mi/mir, Old Saxon mi, Middle Dutch mi, Dutch mij, Old High German mih/mir, German mich/mir, Old Norse mik/mer, Gothic mik/mis; from PIE root *me-, oblique form of the personal pronoun of the first person singular (nominative *eg; see I); cf. Sanskrit, Avestan mam, Greek eme, Latin me, mihi, Old Irish me, Welsh mi “me,” Old Church Slavonic me, Hittite ammuk.

Erroneous or vulgar use for nominative (e.g. it is me) attested from c.1500. Dative preserved in obsolete meseems, methinks and expressions such as sing me a song (“dative of interest”). Reflexively, “myself, for myself, to myself” from late Old English.
