they are called pants because each leg is covered by one pant, and since most people have two legs they wear a pair of pants.

Same goes with pantyhoes but i dont think they are made up of hose. I think "hose" is some german word for pants im not quite sure though.

Because the plural is "pairs of pantyhose". Since the garment itself is not a hose, but made up of hose, you have an amount of hose, but you have a number of pairs.
