Word Origin for trivia
"trivialities, things of little consequence," 1902, popularized as title of a book by L.P. Smith, from Latin trivia, plural of trivium "place where three roads meet," in transferred use, "an open place, a public place" (see trivial). The sense connection is "public," hence "common, commonplace."
